Stephen Wood is a saxophonist, woodwind doubler, composer, and performer. He graduated from Cal State University Long Beach with a degree in music performance and focus in jazz studies.
During college he performed with bands of all different styles from jazz, latin, rock, pop, blues, and reggae. Improvising was the driving force for his love for music and later developed a passion for teaching, arranging, and composing music.
As a teacher, his number one goal is to find the balance between becoming technically proficient on the student’s instrument while showing how much enjoyment there is when playing and listening to music.
