Ander Svanoe's Madison Saxophone

Saxophone Lessons

Lessons take place at my house on the eastside of Madison.  I also teach at East High School once a week for East High school students interested in taking lessons. I accept all levels and all ages specializing in beginners and adults. I coach all of the Solo and Ensemble repertory and college audition material for high school students needing to play auditions for college. All styles are covered (Jazz, Latin, Classical). Typically lessons will be every other week for one hour on Mondays or Tuesdays.

If you are interested in more information, please contact me, I’d love to talk with you!

From Past Student, Ryan Truesdell

"My first sax teacher in the Madison area was Anders Svanoe. He was a great teacher and remains a good friend today. He wasn't just interested in the music, but also the history. In addition to teaching how to play the instrument, we would look at pictures of Charlie Parker or other saxophonists and try to figure out the type of saxophone they were playing, the history behind the instruments and all the other aesthetics. Anders was very influential in sparking my love of not just music, but its history, too."
