Summer Camp 2022

Saxophone Boot Camp for intermediate and advanced players


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.
