Below is a little article I wrote about playing in a group for the first time. I was inspired to write this when I started thinking about my own experiences of playing in an ensemble for the first time, and the comments I hear from my students. Hopefully this will encourage people to give it a go and join a local group or band. It is without doubt one of the best things you can do to improve your playing and all-round musicianship and a fun and rewarding activity to take part in!
We launched our new website for Fife Sax School last week. Head along and check it out for the latest news about saxophone lessons, classes, workshops and courses in Fife!
Had a lovely time recording a few tunes with the SSE folks and David Milne yesterday. Great music and beautiful surroundings!
Playing with Scottish Swing Orchestra tonight ‘Queens of Swing’ are Edinburgh Jazz Festival. Lots of great stuff happening at the festival this year – come and check it out if you can!
Exciting news! I am starting a new group for amateur saxophonists looking for an opportunity to play with others. I will initially be running a five-week series of rehearsals with an informal concert for friends and family in the final week. The rehearsals will take place at the Rothes Halls in Glenrothes on a Monday evening from 7-9pm.
Fife Community Sax Group will offer people of all ages the chance to play with others in a relaxed, supportive setting. The focus will be on learning the techniques of playing in an ensemble, which many learners do not have access to through individual lessons and practice. I will provide parts with a range of difficulties so that people feel comfortably challenged.
I hope you can join us for our first rehearsal on August 19th 2019. For further info and to register your interest, please visit this page.
