Keith F. - Clarinet, Saxophone & Flute
In addition to vast experience as a music educator (over 50,000 private lessons to date on flute, saxophone and clarinet), Keith has extensive performing and recording experience. He has appeared as a featured performer in Japan, Canada, and across the U.S. for Yamaha Corporation. Keith studied jazz theory while attending Biola University, then later with renowned jazz educator Charlie Shoemake. Keith has also been a featured clinician for Southern California Band & Orchestra Association (SCSBOA).
In addition to his playing experience, Keith has been published by several magazines including Jazz Ed magazine & Flute Talk magazine. His own instructional book titled ??? is distributed by J.W. Pepper and Jamey Aebersold and may be purchased online or at OC Music Center.
One thing (out of many) that we love about Keith is that he often incorporates audio/video for the lessons - so that the student has a handy reference for home practice that week. Keith and his wife are grateful that their 3 cats are open to the idea of sharing their Southern California home with them.
