Ron McGee

Saxophone

Whether your final goal is to become a Jazz, Rock, Big Band or Classical Artist, a fundamental proficiency on the instrument is a must. I will do my best to see you reach your goal through individually formulated practice routines concentrating on technical accuracy, tonal production and precise articulation. I am most fortunate to have studied and performed with many of the world's greatest saxophonist and wish to pass on the knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
