"Hi, I'm Christian. I am a pianist, saxophonist, and clarinetist specializing in Jazz music. I graduated from Skidmore College with a B.A. in Music. I am a young musician who remembers both the frustration of not understanding the unclear instruction from some of my teachers and the relief I felt when a teacher explained concepts clearly.

I am dedicated to meeting students where they are in their musical journey and elevating them to the next stage. I have worked with students in a variety of settings, including at a summer music camp, in lecture-style demonstrations, and in one-on-one tutoring sessions.

I have extensive experience with a wide variety of music. I have played in many jazz ensembles and studied improvisation, primarily on piano and saxophone. I have also played clarinet in my orchestra, flute in my college large wind ensemble, and saxophone in classical chamber groups. I have also played with multiple rock and funk bands. I have played gigs ranging from jazz standards to funk-rock music to fully improvised experimental music.

I believe that it is vital to be able to read sheet music fluently, but also to understand the fundamental musical relationships that live off of the page and in our ears. My approach to music is to always understand what we are playing so that we can learn to be improvisors and composers.

I will be very easy to contact and will be dedicated to giving my student the specialized instruction they deserve. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or to schedule a lesson!" less...
