Saxophonist and Composer Jeremy Howell has performed with classical, jazz, funk, and rock ensembles in eleven countries.

Mr. Howell mentors his students from the perspective of both a saxophonist and a creative artist. Whether it’s an open-minded approach to developing technique, interpreting a piece of music, or creating something entirely new, he brings his inquisitive teaching style forth to cultivate his students’ musicianship and ingenuity.
