Saxophone Lessons


Joshua Glaser was born in New Orleans and began playing musical instruments in elementary school, studying both brass and woodwinds. He was first connected with the saxophone in 4thgrade and since that time he has earned a reputation as an excellent player and teacher.


Throughout high school in Montgomery County (MD) Public Schools, one of the nation’s top school systems, he was saxophone section leader of the jazz ensemble and acclaimed as a mentor for students in the music program as a whole, winning the prestigious Louis Armstrong and Director’s awards in his senior year. While in high school he studied with Paul Carr, Bruce Swain and Tim Powell to name a few. He also performed regularly with one of the Washington, DC’s top jazz vocalists Sharon Clark.


Since returning to New Orleans in 2008 to study jazz at the University of New Orleans he has studied with Ed Petersen, Brent Rose, Victor “Red” Atkins, Steve Masakowski, Matt Perrine, and Brian Seeger. During this time he has performed with musical luminaries such as Lucian Barbarin, John Ellis, Sharon Clark, Victor Goines and Tom Fischer to name a few.




He has natural teaching ability honed through years as a tutor and camp counselor. As a teacher Joshua aims to impart a comprehensive understanding of the building blocks of excellent musicianship while providing opportunities for individual expression that jazz improvisation offers.

Student gives guitar teacher, David Putnam, an electric guitar!

When I have a student get excited about our lessons it really makes me happy inside to know that I can bring other people joy, especially, through music! I've had many tips given to me from my students over the years as a thank you to me for all they have learned from our lessons. I've received gifts that have ranged from money to books and more and I am so grateful for all. Just recently, I was given a guitar as a thank you from one of my jazz guitar students, Matthias. How cool is that?! (it's the cream guitar on the right).

Check out Matthias' band, Indyus. His music will definitely get you going!
