Event Details

What is it about the playing of a great jazz saxophonist that makes it sound so fluid and professional? Tone, intonation, time and note choice are important, but they are not enough. In this workshop we observe and discuss many of the choices of note attack, emphasis, contour, duration and release that differentiate a master from an average player. Students will be critiqued and interactively guided by the instructor to overcome their individual obstacles.

Participation is encouraged but not required. To participate, please prepare this étude to play for critique: http://antonjazz.com/saxophone-etude. Those who find the étude too challenging are encouraged to play it at a slow tempo, or prepare an easier piece such as “Doxy” or “Tenor Madness.”

Sunday, March 23, 1:45 – 4:15pm
$40 advance • $55 day of workshop
