I teach the saxophone to adults and children at all levels. I also offer saxophone lessons in English and German.
Whether you’d like to play pop music, jazz, world music, read music or improvise — I’ll be your guide. Music is communication! Playing together and listening to each other is essential. And if you enjoy yourself, you learn faster. A good technique is part of that, of course. We’ll work towards a solid fundament from where you can explore the music that interests you.
You can start playing the saxophone when you’re around 7 years old. Very young children can use special, lightweight saxophones, which are perfect during the first 2 years.
By the way, for adults it is never too late to start, even if you’ve never played an instrument before.
With beginners, I use saxophone methods like Swinging Beginning and Horen Lezen Spelen.
With advanced students, I work on repertoire of pop, jazz, soul en classical music. Since my background is in jazz, I’m specialized in improvisation. If you wish to learn to play jazz, funk or pop solos, I can teach you to do that. If you are already in a band , I’ll be happy to help you with the tunes that you’re playing there. Or do you compose yourself? Perfect! Just bring your songs along to the lesson.
