Gemma Galeano
Saxophone lessons adapted to your needs and wishes!
I have many years of teaching experience working in Music Schools and as a private teacher. I have taught from children to adults and prepared students for entrance exams. My educational philosophy relates to increasing the motivation of the students through showing them easier, effective and fun tools and ways to work on our instrument. I am specialized in classical saxophone, but I combine it with contemporary saxophone, jazz, contemporary improvisation and piano. We could also combine our classical saxophone lessons with those specialties, in order to obtain a complete learning. We could also improve the musical base through theory and solfa lessons. If you are interested in playing the saxophone as a hobby or professionally, I will adapt the lesson contents taking into account your needs and wishes.

Bastien
Classical saxophone / contemporary / improvisational approach / harmonic understanding / basic solfège
Student at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. From practical lessons to theoretical notions, I know how to adapt to the student and his interests to provide a course that really brings him the elements that will allow him to quickly flourish in the musical field. With already 4 years of course experience in non-profit organizations and in particular, I usually train students of all ages, beginners or more advanced. I am open to a large number of musical styles, current or old, focusing my thought on a "musical whole". I currently specialize in classical and contemporary saxophone but I am also very open to improvisation and live music such as jazz and the styles that derive from it, but also to electronic music. My final goal is to allow the student to express his ideas in music, and that he really evolves and flourishes in what pleases him. I take beginners without any knowledge of music theory. I am available in: * Region of Brussels. * Region of Tournai occasionally. * Online, via webcam lessons

Passionate about multidisciplinary artistic creation, he thinks of mixing all the arts in the same show as an aesthetic finality. We could observe this type of research in his project for his final master's recital in Brussels where he created a project based on Maslow's hierarchy of human needs theory where he mixes live, recorded, music and music. dance, play of light and effects under the name of: “according to Maslow…” In his career as a concert artist, he has played in different ensembles (solo, duo, trio, quartet, orchestra performances, etc.) and in different countries such as Japan (Artisanal music fair “Suono Italia” 2010), Belgium (Festival Musiq3 2016 ), Artonov Festival at BOZAR in 2016…), France (Dax chamber music festival 2011) 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.

Warre
Online saxophone lesson for beginners and advanced players!
How does a normal saxophone lesson look? A saxophone lesson is completely different every time. Maybe one week we'll learn a difficult technical piece and the next week a popular song of you choice. Sometimes we talk a little bit about music theory, other times we may be improvising. The first lessons we'll focus on building a good foundation: a perfect posture, the right breathing technique, finger- and mouth-positioning. A little knowledge about the instrument itself is certainly not skipped. Do I have to know music theory beforehand? No. During the lesson I will teach you music theory, to immediately apply it in practice. Rest assured, this does not precede playing the saxophone. For the people who already have a background in music theory, all the better. In the lessons I can refine your theoretical knowledge. How often do classes take place? You choose how often the saxophone lessons take place, this always depends on what you want to achieve yourself. It goes without saying that the more regularly you take lessons, the greater my commitment is. This is because the follow-up is easier. This of course depends entirely on your own work / school / life schedule. How often will I have to practice? Learning any instrument takes time and effort. The ideal solution is that you can practice a little bit every day, but I know that this is not possible for many. It is mainly a matter of exercising as consistently as possible. Preferably five minutes every day, then once a week for two hours. How long does it take before I can play known songs? That depends entirely on yourself. If you can practice every day from day one, it won't be long at all. If, on the other hand, you take your saxophone once every two weeks, it can take longer From and until what age can I learn to play the saxophone? There is no age on music. The young children can test whether they can hold a saxophone. For the little ones it is advisable to learn to play the saxophone on a curved soprano. The alt saxophone is the best option for all other interested people.
