About Mr. Galen Green

I graduated Cum Laude from Cornish College of the Arts with a Bachelorʼs Degree in Music. I have performed with world-renowned musicians such as the Temptations, The Four Tops, and Tito Puente, Jr, toured nationally and internationally, been featured on many studio recordings and major-market commercial advertisements, and played in pit orchestras, cruise ships, circus shows, and bands of just about every style. I have 18 years of experience teaching saxophone, clarinet, and flute lessons to aspiring musicians of all ages and levels, and six years directing bands in K-12 public and private schools. I strive to share my own passion for music with students, to teach them to listen with open ears and minds, and to instill in them a curiosity for music that will last a lifetime.

My parents give me endless encouragement, support, and inspiration, and I owe them each my deepest love and gratitude. I was also incredibly fortunate to study with the great jazz saxophonist Hadley Caliman, whose influence has shaped my life in music.
