Stan Killian

world renowned saxophonist specializing in jazz, pop and classical
Teaching Philosophy

I give private music lessons to students who have a genuine love and appreciation for music and a strong desire to learn. I teach all ages and levels and work well with adults. Whether it's learning jazz or pop music, I customize the lesson plan to ensure that my students learn what they want to. Within the course of the lessons, we not only cover fundamentals, but we also learn to create and compose original music

Experience

I have 13 years of private teaching experience across the US. I began teaching high school and middle school saxophone students in my home state Texas working on challenging classical and jazz etudes preparing kids for All State competitions. I was appointed Music Instructor at the Art and Drama Therapy Institute in Washington DC working with adults with developmental disabilities. I teach in NYC as I currently pursue my performance career.
