Come and play saxophone with Fife Sax School at the King’s Theatre Kirkcaldy on Saturday 7th March.

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!
Just had a lovely morning working with saxophone students and staff from Scots College, Sydney who are visiting St. Andrews Music Centre. We talked about technique, practice routines, and storytelling through music. Heard some really great playing, well done everyone!
