Have you always wanted to learn to play the saxophone?
Have always dreamed of playing or maybe a child who feels Lisa from the Simpsons is the coolest musician and saxophone is the perfect fit for you. We love teaching the saxophone at BSM and we teach beginners through to advanced level, everyone is welcome.
Beginner Saxophone Lessons
Beginner saxophone lessons will include skills such as exploring the instrument and learning basic theory to help with melody and rhythms so you can start to play straight away. Beginner students will be taught a variety of foundational skills through fun methods from hand position, exercises to help develop your playing ability and learning pieces to play to help you progress. Many students aim to take an accredited exam with ABRSM, Trinity, and LCM.
Intermediate / Advanced Saxophone Lessons
So you’ve learned the basics but where do you go from here. Students at this level usually progress to performing solo or taking part in our ensemble’s, working towards an exam or competing at festival competitions. Many students however are just eager to keep making progress. Students continue to grow through learning and improving theory, learning scales and exercises to help developing various techniques, developing your tone and musicianship skills, all while playing a wide range of material. Our tutors love teaching the saxophone and they will help guide you to get the right syllabus that suits you. Many students aim to take an exam and we structure lessons to support this, teaching across all of the main exam boards and the various syllabuses on offer.
Our lessons are customised to suit each student’s ability, age, learning style, and pace of learning. We cover reading notation, tuning, exploring melody, developing tone and various techniques required at each level.
Lessons are 1-2-1 and taken regularly once a week.
Our tutors have a wealth of experience teaching and consist of graduates, performing musicians, lectures and we even have an in-house RSL music examiner to help you achieve your best mark possible.
