The word saxophone refers to a family of woodwind instruments. Most people are familiar with the tenor sax, but there are also alto, baritone, and soprano saxophones. Although the saxophone has made some appearances in modern rock music, blues, and pop, it's mostly known as a staple of the jazz sound. Some parents believe that if a child participates in a school band, he or she does not need private lessons. It is not true. School band rehearsals are often held as a big group lesson, with little to no focus on saxophone specifically, ear training, music theory, or your child individually. In addition, band saxophone repertoire usually does not exercise the whole range of the saxophone and does not allow improvisation. Private lessons will, therefore, focus on your child’s learning, improve his or her abilities for band participation and expand the range of his or her saxophone mastery and repertoire.
The lessons we provide are tailored to the needs of each student, his/her musical interests, and objectives in music. We design practice routines for each student individually, exercising different areas of music (saxophone technique, sound, intonation, rhythm, harmony, melody and form, improvisation, sight-reading, ear training, etc.). All lessons are taught by actively performing artists to make sure you learn from the best. Our instructors have many years of experience teaching children and adults, and they are passionate about passing on their skills to others. Whatever your goals are – to be the first saxophone in a school band, audition for a jazz group, or just to play for your family – we can help you.
We also offer preparation for ABRSM and RCM Exams. ABRSM and RCM are the world's leading providers of music assessments. Preparation for these exams is a great way to get a structured musical education and ABRSM diplomas and RCM certificates are internationally recognized levels of proficiency in music.
