Learning sax should be fun!

Yes, learning the saxophone, like any skill, can be challenging, but it is extremely rewarding! The best part of learning any instrument is being able to play your favorite songs and sharing your joy of music with others. 6MS gets you playing pop music right out of the gate while teaching you all the essentials you will need to be a phenomenal musician! 
Overview

Here is what you will learn

Songs

The whole reason why we pick up an instrument is to play music! 6MS' teaches you everything you need to know to become a proficient saxophonist through the use of pop songs. This will allow you to grow your skills and repertoire at the same time.

Technical Facility

Technique refers to ones ability to execute with precision  and dexterity on the horn; this includes articulations. The Woodshed  series gives you a growing bank of technique building exercises to help you develop fluidity on your horn. 

Sound & Intonation

These are the first things listeners hear when you play your horn making them very important subjects. We spend a great deal of time working on this; don't worry, you're in good hands!

Improvisation

We will be exploring chord theory , chord progressions and how to add your own flare to the music.  Improvisation is best learned in steps and we make it easy and accessible.

Theory

Music theory explains how and why things work in the world of theory.  We will be tackling subjects such as scales, the music alphabet, harmonics, voice leading and so much more. The best part about music theory is that you can apply what you learn immediately.

Aural Training

How do we play what we hear in our heads? Relative pitch is one of the key s to great improvisation and playing music by ear.  We will give you the tools to bring the creativity in your head out onto your sax!

What our learners say about us

 Hey guys my name is Phil and I have been so fortunate enough to have Kevin as my teacher. Kevin is extremely easy to work with. He is passionate about not only playing the sax but teaching it as well. He puts in all the time and effort to make sure you have a good understanding of all the fundamental tools you will need to take your playing to higher levels.
If you wish to play long term and learn at a great pace “ Six month sax” is actually a fantastic program to getting you on your way.
The program is easy to use and Kevin easily tailors to all levels and styles of learning. He instills confidence in my playing and I would not have gotten as far as I have without him.
So I leave you with this, the saxophone is a beautiful instrument, fun to play and to learn. And if it’s as close to your heart as it is mine the challenges will be easily conquered.
As Kevin always tells me “you get out of it what you put into it”
Happy practicing.

Kevin is an excellent teacher. He gives in-depth information to make sure that I understand different jazz concepts. He is really generous with his time and gives advice and listens to recordings all throughout the week when asked. He is really passionate about music and teaching and overall great to learn from. I’d highly recommend him as a teacher.

My name is Kate and I have been taking the 6 month sax program for 6 months now and I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts on this program and Kevin as a teacher.
It has been really wonderful and really motivating to have such a great wealth of information to answer all my questions. It helps me from stopping and getting frustrated.
I've tried to learn the sax a couple of times before, but it never really stuck. Normally I'll hit some sort of problem like being unable to hit a note or technical issues and it just holds me back. Kevin has been able to listen to my recordings, get back to me right away and help me solve my problems. It makes me really excited to try new things and he is always coming up with new ideas and fun exercises. I can't recommend this course enough. Anybody who is looking to get started, to know the basics of how to play the saxophone, this is the right course for you. So enjoy and have fun playing sax!
