SAX TECHNIQUES: Growling, Bending, Vibrato - SUNDAY MAY 17 (3-5PM ET)
We're excited to announce this Sax Techniques workshop which is dives into incorporating growling, bending and adding vibrato on the sax! By developing these techniques you’ll have more freedom to express yourself on the sax! We're stoked to show you all the musical places you can take these techniques.
In this 2 hour online workshop you will walk away with exercises and new techniques for these three techniques.
We’ll be walking you through each technique step by step, giving you exercises you can practice at home and answering your questions live. We’ll also leave you with a PDF workbook, a private curated playlist and a special surprise that will be emailed to you before our session!
There will be a live Q&A for each topic in the curriculum and we will spend time answering your questions regarding each topic!
<3 Grace + Leo
Bending + Q&A (25 min)
You will learn to create a bend on the sax and begin to integrate it into your lines to spice up your phrasing! We'll demonstrate the different ways we add bends into our playing and show you where you can take it.
Vibrato + Q&A (25 min)
In this segment you'll learn the different kinds of vibrato including wobble and tremelo. We'll teach you how to start manipulating your vibrato by beginning to pulsate and change pitch of one note. We'll show you the different contexts you can sprinkle in vibrato and how to continue practicing it and get it faster.
Growling + Q&A (25 min)
Growling is one of the most fun natural effects you can add into your sax playing! We'll teach you how to get the growl sound and how to keep practicing it. We'll show you you where we like to place in our growls and how you can use it to add more expression and dynamics into your playing.
Putting it All Together (15 min)
We'll teach you how you can pull these 3 techniques together and demonstrate where you can take it!
