Learn Saxophone and fun Music Skills including improvisation

The saxophone is one of the most iconic jazz instruments, but it can be tricky to learn without the right teaching. That's where I come in! I have a 1st Class Hons degree from the Royal Academy of Music - so I know what I'm talking about! And I have 2 young children, so I know how to get information across to kids and make things fun.

My classes will bring together everything saxophone and music related, from basic technique and how to make a sound, to improvisation and jazz concepts. All abilities are catered for.

Extra information

Classes taught over Zoom - so a device that can run Zoom is necessary.
No specific books needed - I can provide PDFs of the necessary music.

About Me

I have been playing the saxophone since I was aged 11 (I'm now 32!) and have been a professional musician since graduating from The Royal Academy of Music. I have played all over the world with artists including The Maccabees, Michael Kiwanuka, and Gloria Gaynor, and have been a part of the X-Factor Big Band several times.

I love to teach - sharing knowledge is such a huge part of being a musician, whether it's honing specific skills of an advanced player, or just working out how to make a great sound as a beginner. The absolute number 1 thing is to keep music fun!
That's why we do it, and that's why we love it!

Education

1st Class Hons Degree from the Royal Academy of Music. Here I studied with many fantastic teachers and musicians including Stan Sulzmann, Martin Speake, and Nick Smart.
A-Levels: Music (A), Maths (A), Physics (A)

Experience / Qualifications

I have my LRAM (The Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music) teaching diploma.

We follow a working method where you will develop in a continuous and deep way your musicality, way of playing, expressiveness and technique. -------------------------------------------------- ---------------------- Raúl is a Spanish saxophonist who finished his MASTER DIDACTIC in 2018 in the Ecole Supérieure des Arts in Mons. Before, he also followed a MASTER of INTERPRETATION at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels (2015-2017) in the class of Alain Crepin and Simon Diricq. He studied at the "Musikene" (Higher Conservatory of Music of the Basque Country) with Eric Devallon, Tomás Jérez, Antonio Felipe Belijar and Miguel Ángel Lorente. Passionate about multidisciplinary artistic creation, he thinks of mixing all the arts in the same show as an aesthetic finality. This type of research has been observed in his project for his final master's recital in Brussels where he created a project based on Maslow's theory of human needs hierarchy where he mixes live, recorded music from the dance, light effects and effects under the name of "according to Maslow ..." At the level of his career as a concert artist, he has played in different ensembles (solo, duet, trio, quartet, orchestra ...) and different countries such as Japan ("Suono Italia" 2010), Belgium (2016 Musiq3 Festival) ), Artonov Festival at BOZAR in 2016 ...), France (Dax 2011 chamber music festival) or Spain (Quincena Musical Music Festival 2015, Aste Nagusia 2015, Heineken Jazzaldia 2014, Kutxa Festival 2015, Intercentros Melómano 2010).

Do you want to learn how to play saxophone in Amsterdam?
Music is the best way of communication in the world, the most international language and an easy way of sharing. Teaching means a lot for me; it allows me to pass on beautiful things I have learnt and at the same time to improve thanks to my students' feedback. Music and musical teaching are about joy and never-ending curiosity. My lessons are totally compiled on the student's needs, both time-wise and content-wise, and they are aimed to get quick results. We can work out many different topics together, such as learning tunes, technique, improvising, as well as approaching theory, reading, circular breathing, altissimo register and multiphonics... The lessons usually take place in my studio close by Javaplein in Amsterdam or by my house in Bos en Lommer. I work mornings and evenings as well as in the week end. Saxophone is fun! Contact me and get a first lesson as soon as possible, I am looking forward to meeting you.
