Saxophones Workshop

An introduction to jazz saxophone will be followed by a history of the instrument, with musical excerpts from jazz legends of saxophone such as Sidney Bechet, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Wayne Shorter.

We will look at chord progressions, modes and improvisational styles, from two-step to bebop and cool to modern. We will look at repertoire and jazz standards such as Misty, Giant Steps, All Blues, Anthropology, Ornithology, Afro Blue and Take Five. The course will start as a workshop, and might be offered as a 6-10 week course.
