My name is Dean Ritchey - I have been teaching music for over 30 years, and I'm in this business to empower people who don't want to pay the high cost of music lessons to pursue their dreams of playing an instrument. But helping people achieve their dreams is impossible if there isn't an easy-to-follow, orderly formula for success.
It saddens me to see so many excited new guitar players lost, confused, and frustrated because they failed to develop the fundamental building blocks needed to learn more advanced skills, and ultimately get discouraged and give up on their dream.

There's no doubt about it, one-on-one live music lessons are expensive. Depending on the instructor, you will spend $40-80 per hour. And, if you don't own one already - you still need to buy an instrument to be able to practice at home.
It's just nuts. I already told you, I'm here to empower people with music who looked at the hourly price of lessons and sadly thought, "no way."
My 6-Week Online Saxophone School - Module 1 course costs $14.99... that comes out to only $2.50/lesson. Plus, I'm so confident in the revolutionary methods contained within, I offer a money-back guarantee (but more on that in a minute). If you know anyone offering a course for a price like that, please let me know. I have yet to find one.
Careful, don't confuse yourself with complex music theory... it can be just as frustrating as learning a foreign language. In the first module, I ONLY introduce the absolute minimum of theory needed to begin playing -- and slowly, as you progress, I layer on more advanced elements.
Compare the process to building a snowman... you don't do all the heavy lifting yourself, right? You start with a small ball (the bare minimum) then roll it across the field as it grows and builds itself.
I also devised a unique system to imprint musical notation into your memory. By removing all the unnecessary elements that normally bog down beginners, I free up your limited mental resources to focus on the essentials.
Here's why this is important: when first learning where a note belongs on the saxophone I remove timing out of the equation for the student. The results are amazing... this allows the students to laser-focus only on the pitch of where that specific note is on the music, which accelerates the learning curve like crazy for remembering notes on the music score.
In addition, I also reinforce this by using a unique method of kinetic tapping and chanting in live time before it is introduced on the instrument - further embedding the understanding into the student's mind.
One of the best parts of my program is the flexibility you will receive. Learn from the couch in your PJs if you want. Bring these lessons anywhere you can fit a laptop, tablet, or phone and your saxophone. Doesn't matter, it's all up to you.
Forget about leaving friends or family at home and having to drive through traffic to get to your $40 lesson.
Forget the frustration of desperately trying to remember what you learned a week or two ago. Scanning your brain might help you remember half of your previous lesson...
...but you'll never fully remember 100% of everything you need (unless you have a photographic memory... pls tell me how you do that).
With my lessons, you enjoy the convenient option of rewinding to refresh your memory. If you need to get up and do something, just pause and return when you are ready. Each lesson can be started whenever you want, and you will have three full weeks to complete each lesson before they expire. And you can watch them as many times as you want.
If you are hungry to learn and passionate about improving your ability... you can work through the lessons as quickly as you want, and move on to Online Saxophone School - Module 2 for continuing your educational journey.
Your lessons will be the product of decades of teaching experience -- all the common beginner struggles, questions, confusion will be addressed (all of them) and resolved in real time... and as soon as you hit the bump in the road, I'll be ready and waiting to guide you through it.
Any common pitfall or roadblock you come across, I have already identified and addressed. I realize this is a bold claim, but I've been doing this for so long that I know with complete certainty there are no mistakes I have missed. If you follow along and listen, any question you have will be answered. Here's exactly what I mean...
Almost all saxophone students will find it challenging at first to find the proper use of facial muscles and the shaping of the lips to the mouthpiece - which is known as "embouchure". You actually use the same muscles to talk as you do to play the sax. And that fact is at the root of my teaching method...
Finding the common overlap between speaking and embouchure allows students to learn with knowledge they already have. In addition, I break it down into one step after another - just like this:
All in all, my methods cut the fat, isolate the problem, and clear the clutter so you can focus on one thing at a time... and, once the basics become second nature, you can layer on skills and build speed to be playing songs in under a week!
