3:00- 4:30pm ET - Tricks for Advanced Players: False Fingers, Chromatic Tremolo, Toggling
False Fingering (20 min)
We’ll show you a couple different techniques for adding false fingering into your phrases. This is a really cool technique that sounds way more complicated than it actually is! It will make you sound more rhythmic and technical as you go about playing your lines.
Chromatic Tremolo (20 min)
This technique mirrors the sound of an electric guitar building up chromatically in its high register. You may have also heard it from bebop masters such as Cannonball Adderly and Phil Woods. This is a great one to throw in at the height of your solo to escalate your dynamics even more!
Trills & Toggling (20 min)
We’ll show you some cool techniques for adding unusual rhythmic sounds using trills and toggling. These are ones you can throw in at any given moment and it will add an impressive jab into your lines.
Live feedback + Q&A (30 min)
In this last segment we’ll put it all together and show you how any of these given tricks put together can sound super impressive when used with taste and fluidity. We’ll bring some of you on to the screen to try it out and get our feedback and we will answer any additional questions you may have!
5:00-6:00pm ET - Q&A and Virtual Jam Session!
We will use this time to answer any remaining questions and hold a guided jam session where we will lead you through some tracks and grooves.
Don't take our word for how awesome this will be, here is what past students are saying:
“The biggest take-away from your workshop is this - access to your enthusiasm and encouragement. It has provided me with extra air under my wings in approaching my practice at the craft of playing the saxophone. You guys are the new generation, the mantle has been passed on and it couldn't be in better hands. God Bless you both!” - Jay 🎷
"You guys! I am so proud of my kid, thank you so much for encouraging her! She felt like the online workshops weren't for her because she is a student, but went for it and really gained a lot from them... both skills and confidence! Thank you for including all skill levels!" - Stacey ❤️
"Thanks again for the awesome workshop last weekend. My son thinks the world of you both. And I know Leo has been so instrumental in shaping his confidence - not just in music but in life. Just thank you. So much. These workshops are fantastic." - Jessica 🎉
