When I took lessons from Ricky Sweum, he proved to be exactly what I needed. He has a fantastic knowledge of jazz improvisation, jazz theory, jazz arranging, jazz composition, and saxophone. Ricky has proven he can put all that knowledge together in an incremental way to suit the learner. As a music educator, I highly recommend him.
