Summer Camp 2022

Saxophone Boot Camp for intermediate and advanced players

Description

For soprano, alto, tenor and baritone sax players. Students will learn essential saxophone techniques and understand their role in a variety of performance situations.

This is not a beginning class. It is for high school and college students who can already read music and want to boost their playing.

Course content includes:
  • Embouchure and tone production
  • Exercises for finger velocity
  • Scales, exotic scales, modes and chord progressions
  • Jazz improvisation
  • Ear training and listening
  • Jam session etiquette

The class culminates in a recital to include sax quartets and jazz combos with improvisation. Materials are distributed on paper in a looseleaf folder to keep as a lifelong reminder of this intense week of musical concepts.
