Our Adult Ensemble is for intermediate players looking for a new and engaging way to learn the saxophone outside of private lessons. Rehearsals are run by our expert saxophone tutors in a non-judgmental and friendly environment.

Martino has a passion to ensure that each and every one of his students is improving. He is extremely patient, knowledgeable and strives to get the best out of his group”
