Come and play saxophone with Fife Sax School at the King’s Theatre Kirkcaldy on Saturday 7th March.
A morning workshop for saxophone players featuring a mixture of musical styles and the chance to play as part of a group in a relaxed, informal setting. Featuring expert tuition from local sax player and teacher Ellie Steemson, there will be a chance to get tips on all aspects of saxophone playing including tuning, dynamics, articulation and tone quality.
Fife Sax School is delighted to host our first event in conjunction with the ongoing restoration effort at the King’s Theatre, Kirkcaldy. The workshop will take place in the newly-renovated RoomOne, followed by a short informal concert in the Live Lounge.

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!
Looking forward to this evening when Scottish Sax Ensemble will be playing some great music at The Outhouse Edinburgh with special guest David Milne. Music by composers including Bill Dobbins, Albeniz, Paquito D’Rivera and our very own Sue McKenzie.
