John Thomas has been  inspiring musicians of all ages for more than two decades. While currently on the faculty of Towson University, John maintains a select studio of private students both at his home studio in Baltimore and from around the globe through the magic of online instruction. 

John's versatility as an artist is reflected in what he offers to his students.  His deep knowledge of both the classical technique and jazz tradition of the saxophone allow for a truly well-rounded understanding of the instrument and its role in music. 

Whether you are a beginner looking to get a solid start or a semi-professional player looking to take your playing to the next level, John can help. He has built a methodology that works to build technique, artistry, and musical awareness.

The following questions may help you decide if studying saxophone with John is right for you:


Are you a classical saxophonist who has always wanted to play jazz? 

Are you a jazz saxophonist trying to improve your “legit” playing? 

Are you a high school player preparing for college auditions?

Are you returning to the horn after years off?

Are you a serious player who needs to find new inspiration and direction?

Are you a classically trained musician who wants to explore jazz improvisation?
