Saxaphone, Clarinet, & Piano Teacher Landon Ashby

Landon Ashby

From a young age, Landon has always been entranced by music and storytelling and has been drawn to composing music, especially for film and games. A Texas native, he moved up to Seattle a few years ago to further pursue a career in music and study under two-time Emmy award winning composer Hummie Mann at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program where he earned his Master’s in Music. Landon’s music has been heard in numerous short films, games, and TV shows, and he is currently working onseveral other projects including another short film and video game.

When he’s not composing, Landon also teaches composition and saxophone at all levels, as well as beginning clarinet and piano. He’s a firm believer in helping others find their passion and their musical voice and spreading the joy of music to students of all ages. Beyond teaching a solid foundational technique, he also strives to aid each student in understanding more of the theory behind the music and help foster a deeper relationship with the instrument and performance.

Landon also encourages students to listen, learn, and perform music from all genres and one of his central tenets to teaching is showing students how to kindle their own curiosity and ultimately not only learn from him and other teachers, but for each student to learn to be their own teacher.
