Hey everyone, I am a student at USC and enrolled in jazz sax individual instruction. I am completely new to sax and am not really sure if my teacher is any good for me. He is an extremely talented musician and his sax playing is really excellent, but he even admitted to me that he never teaches complete beginners before..usually just established players looking to reach the next level.
Are there questions I can ask him or something to help determine if he is showing me what he needs to? He has not given me much direction on my embouchure other than 'lower you're jaw' or 'don't lower you're jaw' and I am a little worried about developing bad habits.
Are there things I should bring up to him to MAKE SURE he goes over with me?
