Miss Emily, Our Saxophone & Clarinet Instructor

Please join me in a warm welcome for Miss, Emily our Saxophone and Clarinet Teacher!

Emily grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania and started playing saxophone in fourth grade.  In high school, looking for a new challenge, she took up clarinet, playing in marching band, jazz band, and concert band.  She chose BU instead of a conservatory to pursue interests outside of music, including French literature and anthropology.  Nowadays, when she’s not playing, Emily likes yoga, playing with her cat, Rosie, and cooking, especially pastries.

Mr. David


Meet Mr. David, our Guitar Instructor!


"I love teaching because it gives me such great satisfaction being able to teach a new generation of players the knowledge that I wish I had been taught when I was younger. It also inspires me to keep expanding my skill set and enriching my understanding of music theory. I have never made such huge leaps in my skills and knowledge before I started teaching.  I think that I need my students more than they need me! The styles of music that I teach vary from student to student. I have ample experience teaching contemporary rock/hard rock, but I also have taught blues, improvisation, jazz, progressive rock, fusion, heavy metal, classical guitar and country.  I look forward to meeting all of my new students and to see what they are all capable of. I know they will blow me away after a few months of diligent practice." From David
