2SAXY Workshop - Saxophone 1 (April 7, 2020)
We’re excited to host our second online workshop! This time we are focusing exclusively on saxophone techniques, just like you asked :)
In this 2 hour online workshop you will walk away with exercises and new techniques so you can focus on effective techniques in the practice room and improve faster. There will be live Q & A for each topic in the curriculum. We will bring on while we’re together.
