1:1 LESSONS

The saxophone is a great instrument to learn from an early age.  A good age to start playing is between 9 and 11. Children who start music lessons at an early age develop skills that increase their self-confidence, develop creative thinking and boost their self discipline.

Most importantly, lessons kids are fun and engaging, letting her/him learn learn through experimentation while developing the correct knowledge of what works and what doesn’t in saxophone and music.

Your child will acquire solid musical foundations that will enable her/him to reach a high musical standard to audition to first class music colleges and universities.

We also prepare students for graded exams. So, if you would like your child to work towards graded examinations whether ABRSM or Trinity’s graded exams,  don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to arrange a consultation lesson.

‘Martino was a great teacher to find for my 12-year-old son. He communicates well with young students and is very encouraging and inspiring. Sami’s 2 years with Martino have served him well and he stands out among his student peers in his new school band.’
