Karl Leitzel on tenor saxSaxo-fun! and Guitar Private Music Lessons – Karl Eric Leitzel

Learn to improvise on the saxophone, playing by ear and sitting in on any kind of music you like! No reading music or formal program, this is about figuring out the music by ear, learning how to work with it on an intuitive level, and finding your groove. Tenor, alto, or soprano are welcome, as well as all ages. A good change of pace for band students who want to explore the intuitive side of music, or perhaps something new for adults who have always wanted to play the instrument. All you need is a saxophone in good working order ( Karl can help you find a sax or good servicing work if needed) and a willingness to put in plenty of practice between sessions.

Contact Karl Leitzel at 814-422-8461 or to find a good weekly time slot. $18 per 30 minute lesson. Two friends or family members can do it together at $28 (total) for 45 minutes.
