Zachary Offszanka

Saxophone Music Teacher

About

Hello prospective students! I am an enthusiastic Jazz saxophone teacher who believes the best way to learn is to play! I have been playing saxophone for the last 10 years and in 2011 I completed a music education double degree from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Over the years I have sung in numerous choirs including the W.A Children's Choir and Accapella Praise and played in church bands and the Lions Club Big Band and have performed in a range of venues including the Ellington Jazz club and Winthrop hall. While my area of specialty is Jazz though I also enjoy and have experience with classical and contemporary styles. As a teacher I believe the best way for a student to learn is to experience lessons that are as engaging, practical and authentic as possible and with music this is not hard to do. When tutoring I encourage students to listen to as much of the music they enjoy as possible and select songs that they would like to learn. I then work with the student to help them build the skills and theoretical knowledge necessary to achieving their goals. As students develop their confidence and skills I encourage them to explore and enjoy a wider range of styles to help them grow as performers and music lovers. I am currently looking for novice to intermediate students who want to experience the joys that come from mastering an instrument and playing for and with people.
