Jazz Saxophone Master Class
Course description:
Live, interactive classes where students submit recordings for comments.
Class is designed so students can progress at their own pace and skill level.

All musicians seek to improve as instrumentalists.  It is a never-ending process and saxophonists continually work on topics like – tone, intonation, long tones, vibrato, and dynamics; technique, articulations and extended techniques; repertoire, tunes, transcriptions; scales, chords, patterns and memorization; self-expression, improvisation and composition.  We will study all things saxophone.

The Jazz Saxophone Master Class – Study the Masters course will help you to address these topics, these challenges, helping one to improve through various approaches to playing the saxophone.  This course will study master jazz saxophonists, listening to how they play the saxophone, studying their solos and compositions.  Focus will be on how master saxophonists address the same challenges we all face.  In addition, suggestions will be given on how to develop your personal practice routine focused on addressing your specific needs and goals as a saxophonist, improviser and musician.
