Georgianna Krieger

Instrument: Saxophone | Location: Oakland

Updated: September 20, 2022

Born: March 21, 1967

Georgianna Krieger began playing the saxophone at the age of 9 and just kept playing. She spent several formative years growing up in Denton Texas, a fabled jazz town, and attended the Arts Magnet High school at Booker T. Washington in Dallas. Her first musical memory is of Gerry Mulligan, so it’s not surprising that she plays the baritone saxophone in addition to alto and soprano. If you asked her, Georgianna would tell you she sees a direct correlation between gestural drawing, her visual art and jazz improvisation. “The media are quite different” she says, but the conceptual goal: “to explore a fleeting moment”, is the same. 

Georgianna will be releasing a recording of songs for the saxophone in October 2022 on Bandcamp entitled Embrace. Each song will be accompanied by a work of visual art. The pre-order is available now and you can listen to 4 preview songs today.

Credentials/Background

Creative, fun and rewarding saxophone lessons for students age 9 and up. Learning the craft of playing a musical instrument takes time and individual mentoring. True mastery takes inspiration! In my private lessons for beginning and intermediate saxophone, I not only give each student a strong foundation in saxophone technique, but also talk about the physics of how the saxophone works, the fundamentals of practicing, the joy of playing with others (a philosophy of jazz), musical concepts and ideas for making music part of everyday life
