What to expect?
I’m a motivated and experienced teacher that can teach you all the aspects of playing the saxophone and the music behind it. In the beginning you get a lot of tips of how to blow on the mouthpiece and how to treat the saxophone. For starting it’s good to have a lesson every week.
With all the keys the saxophone looks more complicated than it actually is, as soon as you start playing you will find out that it’s not too difficult to get the first tones and you will be able to play some easy tunes.
I use methods that will teach you the keys and the notes step by step, so it’s not nesesary to have a musical background for starting. I also train the hearing part by repeating exercises, improvising and learning to play by head (without the notes). I let you play different styles of music to give you a musical idea of what you like to play.
The saxophone lessons are at my home adress in Eindhoven in the area of Meerhoven.
When to begin playing?
You can start any time !!! Saxophone is a instrument for all ages. Children form the age of 8/9 years are big enough to start on the alto saxophone. Adults also can choose for example the tenor saxophone. There are several stores where you can buy or rent a saxophone. When you search a second hand saxophone it’s good to get some advice first.
