After hearing him play, having lessons with Emile has increased my respect for him even further. He is deeply knowledgeable, and his pragmatic and engaging teaching approach has helped me improve my playing greatly.

Emile Ryjoch and student Hugh
Emile is not only a highly skilled and talented musician, but a dedicated teacher and mentor to his students.

Emile has a gentle and caring nature which is the perfect learning environment for his students. He is very passionate about music and has the ability to engage and interest students of all ages.

My son Hugh started playing the saxophone 2 years ago. Emile has been an inspiration to him. He has been learning and developing his skills every lessons. It is truly a testament to Emile’s teaching and encouragement that he has come such a long way in such a short time!

I first started having lessons with Emile just before I had got into the James Morrison Academy of Music. I first contacted him because I was looking for someone new to get lessons with. He gladly accepted and it was the best decision I made. When we first started out he didn’t care where I was. He met me where I was at and helped me with what needed to be done. Not only that, he gave me the confidence that I needed to get into things. What I really enjoyed about Emile’s lessons is that we worked on what I wanted to. He didn’t give me set things that we were going to do for the lesson, he asked me what I wanted to do and from that we went from there. It also would carry on into the weeks that passed, but we got so much done through his method of teaching. What I also loved was that because of his knowledge with music, especially jazz gave me a greater understanding of what I needed to know to get a great start to something to what I would later go on to study. He has a love for music and a passion for it which comes out in his teaching that flows onto his students. What else I really did love is he invited me out to his live gigs. This gave me an opportunity to see him play live and get to see and understand some of the things that we had been working on. It was also a great thing because it gave me the opportunity to experience live music. Overall Emile is a fantastic teacher, educator and as a musician is someone who I would highly recommend to anyone looking to get lessons on the saxophone.
