Los Angeles Saxophone Teachers
Victor French (ASCAP) has been playing sax since he was big enough to hold one. He began in Chicago, studying jazz theory and performance under Rob Haight. While a student at Western Illinois University, Victor studied Music Business and performed at Carnegie Hall in 2010. He then moved to Nashville where he worked as a performer and honed his skills as a producer and engineer. In 2014 he returned to Chicago and began instructing privately. He did so until moving to Los Angeles in 2017.
Victor is classically trained in jazz and classical repertoire, as well as having experience with all genres of performance from theater to hiphop. For over a decade he has traveled the nation working in different facets of the industry. His credits include working as a music director at the famed Second City in Chicago, a section player and recording artist, a songwriter, composer, and live sound engineer. It is this exposure to all angles of the music industry that informs his style of teaching and his desire to encourage future generations of musicians.
