SAXOPHONE ENSEMBLE

Enjoy the experience of playing in a saxophone ensemble, working as a group and making music with other fellow musicians.

Put into practice what you have been learning in private/group sessions and prepare to be amazed by the amount of new skills you will pick up along the way (improved listening, sound, musical awareness).

During the Saxophone Ensemble course you will work on one specific piece that, with the help of your instructor,  you will break down and shape the way professionals musicians do; all this in order to deliver a wonderful performance at the end of each course at the student’s concert.
