About Armir

Armir has studied jazz extensively throughout middle and high school. In his freshman year of high school, he formed a jazz quartet that gigged in various venues (corporate events, fundraisers, clubs, etc.) in Houston, Texas. During Armir’s junior year of high school, he applied for the Jason Moran Jazz Summer Program Scholarship and was the recipient of the scholarship for that year. He has toured with Saxophonist Dayna Stephens and vocalist Lisa Henry as a Thelonious Monk Institute Peer to Peer student Ambassador. On this tour for the Thelonious Monk Institute, Armir performed and conducted masterclasses at several high schools in Savanna, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. Along with much performing Armir has given back the knowledge he has attained through private lessons. In addition to private lessons, Armir teaches as a volunteer/faculty member at the jazz summer camp, The Summer Jazz Workshop. This Houston based jazz camp has been the starting point for many prominent jazz musicians such as, Robert Glasper, Walter Smith III, Chris Dave, and many others. Knowing about this lineage of musicians makes Armir feel honored to teach at this camp; thus, making him work even harder to ensure the lineage continues.
Armir currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts and attends Berklee College of Music on a full ride scholarship. This scholarship is referred to as, The Presidential Scholarship, which was only given to Eight people out of the 7,000 people that applied to Berklee for the 2016 Fall Semester. Armir intends to utilize Berklee as an avenue to continue mastering his craft as a performer; however, his major will be a bachelor’s degree in music education. In addition to receiving a bachelor’s degree, Armir intends to attend a graduates program and receive his masters, along with performing professionally.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Saxophone

The information I show to my students, comes directly from my saxophone teachers which include, Brad Leali (Associate Professor of Saxophone and Director of the Three O'Clock Lab Band, University of North Texas), Antonio Hart (Professor of Jazz Saxophone at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College), Walter Smith III (Associate Professor of Music, jazz studies at Indiana University, Jacobs School of Music), and Greg Osby (former saxophone instructor at Berklee College of Music). My teaching style is to zone in on what fundamentals the student lacks and give them exercises that will increase their technical proficiency quickly. Additionally, I not only give my students the information they need to be skilled but also I ask them what it is they would like to learn so the lesson can be hard work and enjoyable at the same time.
