This 3 day camp is an exciting and dynamic experience for any child with a passion for saxophone and music.
Suitable for children of a variety of levels and ages, we aim to pass on the love for music while establishing the basis for understanding a disciplined and consistent practice for future musical development.
All this done in a fun, engaging and non-judgmental atmosphere.
In these camps we work on Disney and movie arranged for saxophone ensemble. Songs to include Bare Necessities, Lion King, Mission Impossible, James Bond, Harry Potter, Star Wars and more.
This saxophone kids camp is structured as a rehearsal of the group where the lead teacher acts as a conductor, demonstrating parts where necessary, trying to get the most out of every player in order to get a great sounding piece at the end.
All is about learning things well in a very short period of time – as in preparing for music college and music profession should any of the kids eventually show signs of interest in a music career.
We like our groups to be moderately small no more than 10, in order to achieve a high standard of playing, teaching and focus from the students.
Most importantly, we aim to help your child engage with music out of interest and curiosity and not by external pressure.
We believe kids achieve high levels of self-discipline when they are driven by their inner interests and passion.
All our teachers are DBS checked.
