  • Teaching Philosophy | Millikin University
    for an approach that can be tailor fit to meet each individual student s needs providing a more fulfilling experience I provide the student with the tools necessary to successfully navigate on their academic journey In my saxophone studio a high level of technical facility is necessary in order for the student to successfully play and more thoroughly understand what it is they are playing This is why I place so much emphasis on scales mechanical studies exercises and etudes If the student attempts to learn technique and musical fluency solely by studying literature his playing will be uneven containing holes in technique that would take a much longer period of time to develop through chance encounters in literature Use of Analogies and Mantras As part of my teaching method I incorporate a set of Mantras which are posted by my door Air is everything Robert Black It CAN be done Frederick Hemke Don t go beyond what you can t do well Jim Riggs Embrace sucking Anonymous Sound before dynamics Get the hell out of the way Dick Oatts The 1st 5 minutes of practice is the most important slow correct M Eckroth You re your own best teacher Loran Eckroth Practice Perfectly Buddy Baker Perfect practice makes perfect playing Whitey Herzog Distinguish yourself in a positive way Playing the saxophone is like flying a helicopter is like riding unicycle is like sailing a sailboat Adjust Scales will set you free These mantras serve to remind students of a particular facet of their playing that needs work and of a way to address it in order to overcome the problem Inevitably something on the list comes up in every lesson I m sure to point that out I refer to them myself as reminders of what it takes for ME to continue to improve and grow Using the students own vernacular language of the day one of these mantras embrace sucking can be best defined as a positive acknowledgement of one s inadequacies Knowing that you can only fix what you know needs fixing and that improvement comes not only from hard work but also from correctly directed work SO having an inadequacy should take on a positive twist It becomes an opportunity to improve This mindset encourages the student to actually LOOK FOR inadequacies in their playing as a means to ensure growth Along with this idea I tell my students that they should sound bad in the practice room because they should be working on the things they can t do rather than what they can already do well Playing the saxophone is like flying a helicopter is like riding a unicycle is like sailing a sailboat This little phrase came to me in my efforts to teach my student how to sail or ride unicycle I realized that these seemingly unrelated activities skills have something in common In order to play a wind instrument successfully the player must constantly and continually make minor adjustments in his
