During his workshop, you will be able to discuss various aspects of playing the saxophone:

  • What is the difference between various saxophones, reeds and mouthpieces?
  • What is the projection of sound, sound quality and how do we actually want to sound?
  • What is a saxophone technique, why do we need it and how to achieve it?
  • How do we build a saxophone language, improvisation vocabulary, which is closely correlated with solo transcriptions?
  • Improvisation from blues to free improvisation.
  • The workshop will focus also on fine-tuning the ear, recognizing intervals, the colour of the sound, the meaning and the philosophy of playing, and foremost on how to express oneself through the medium of music and how to be/become an Artist.
