My name is Tanner and I'm a professional saxophonist and woodwind musician from California and a current touring member with The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra. I started my musical journey with the clarinet when I was 10 years old and switched to saxophone not soon after. In middle school and high school, I was a member of county honor bands and jazz bands as well as California All-State groups. After high school, I attended College of the Sequoias in central California and earned three Associates degrees including degrees in teaching and music. In 2018 I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies degree from California State University, Long Beach and within a few months of graduation, I had a full studio of around 35 weekly students in the Southern California area. In early 2020 I was hired to play alto saxophone with The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra.

I started my teaching and tutoring career in 2009 while I was still only a sophomore in high school, teaching local students and over the past 10 years, I have been able to learn what works best for students of all ages. It is an absolute joy to be able to help a student reach a new level of musicianship or understanding that they weren't able to achieve before.

Over the past 10 years, I have studied with many accomplished saxophonists and woodwind musicians, including Sal Lozano, Rob Lockart, Dr. Alan Durst, James Barrera, and Peter Ortega. The concepts that I pass on to students are concepts I have learned from these masters. I am also a current member of a professional touring big band, The World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, where I perform on saxophone, flute, and clarinet all at a professional level.

If you have any questions regarding studying with me, please do not hesitate to contact me! I look forward to meeting you and taking your musical endeavors to the next level!

Worked really well with my child

Tanner got a good feel for where my son was at in their first lesson. He made it fun, and he related well to my middle-schooler. He asked good questions and set a good pace for learning.
