Your system of teaching is perfect for my learning style. I can't thank you enough for making Sax School."
As a trainer myself (public speaking) I wanted to convey my compliments on your pedagogical style. It is a pleasure to get a lesson from you even if you don’t have a clue who I am ;-)."
I always wanted to learn to play the saxophone, as it's such a cool instrument, but was never able to. With your online lessons I have made great improvement. The tunes you choose as well as the exercises you give are great.
Thank you so much."
Although I first tried to learn sax 50 years ago, without you and Sax School I would never have been able to play alto and tenor like I can now! Keep up the great teaching mate!"
I am really enjoying what you are doing with the school. I have watched many DVDs and You Tube videos of talented players who can't really explain the techniques or the theory - so it often becomes a recital for them but little is gained by the student.
You have a natural gift of teaching coupled with a real musical talent, and that is rare. I look forward to a long and lasting relationship and friendship."
A huge thanks for all your help via Sax School – Still a long way to go but I’m now out gigging, both with my 6-pce 80’s party band (playing the solos in Spandau Ballet, ABC etc) but also on my own in residential care homes - and, without sounding big-headed in any way, the “oldies” are loving the tracks I’ve learnt from your website, like Bye Bye Blackbird & Fly Me To The Moon!
My ultimate goal is to get good enough to start putting myself out there for function work...thanks again!
I thought I was to old to learn much, but I have been playing regularly at my church, at weddings, county fairs and anywhere else someone will allow - it has been great!
Thanks for everything, but thanks mostly for the confidence!"
I've been very fortunate to have worked in just about every aspect of the music business over the last 25 years.
You may have heard my saxophone playing on shows like "24" and "Bones". For more than a decade I've run the big band for one of the most popular shows in Europe - "Rat Pack Live From Las Vegas". I've also conducted tours across Europe and performed with Symphony Orchestras.
As a jazz musician I've performed thousands of shows in clubs, theatres, and festivals across Europe, Japan and Canada.
Over all this time I've learned a lot about playing saxophone, but also about teaching saxophone.
Let me share my knowledge with you!
