Surprisingly the saxophone was originally developed as a classical music instrument before it got its jazzy reputation.  It was invented by a French horn maker, Adolphe Sax, who liked to experiment a lot with the design of brass instruments.  The saxophone was one of his more successful inventions (in my opinion) and has developed into a brilliant instrument full of expression and character.  I studied classical saxophone as a second instrument in my Bachelor of Music degree studies in South Africa and later studied jazz saxophone at the Zurich University of the Arts.  I am comfortable teaching beginner to intermediate level, and enjoy teaching learners of all ages.

Don’t play the saxophone.  Let it play you.
