I have been asked to run a saxophone workshop with a local ensemble called Wight Sax.  They are a community group who rehearse each week in Newport.  They have invited some members of the Trident Concert band to join us, and I’m really looking forward to meeting all theses saxophonists in one place.

We will cover sight reading and warm ups plus looking at one of their existing pieces plus other things, (but I don’t want to give it all away before the event,) during the evening, with the aim of offering advice and encouragement.

This is a closed event, but if it goes well, it will be something that I explore further, open to any player who cares to attend.

This should be a fun evening. I’ll let you know how it goes.

December has me booked to played at a Christmas party at Hendon Grange in Leicester and On Boxing Day I am playing at the Ramada Leicester Stage Hotel for a 1920s Christmas dinner, so not only good food but good music too.

There is also the usual School Carol Concerts to play at. Plus my woodwind ensemble are working hard to perfect Sleigh ride by Leroy Anderson, to be played at Oakham Church.

I will also be entertaining the residents at Sibbertoft Manor Residential Home (the only residential home that has a putting green for them to use!) for a Christmas singalong.

The 29th of DEcember is also the StaxofSax Christmas Saxophone Workshop in Leicester, If any of you players fancy joining us, then please get in touch at staxofsax@gmail.co., it would be great to see you.

A fairly busy month, but still space for a wedding or party or 2, so if you think I can help then please get in touch.

Best wishes

Hi Folks

I just wanted to let you know about the Christmas StaxofSax saxophone workshop on Tuesday the 30th December 2014 at the Leicester South Salvation Army Hall.

Full detail can be found on the link below, please help us to make the day fun and enjoyable by spreading the word amongst your saxophone playing friends.

We will be playing an arrangement especially commissioned for the day in the large ensemble session and then working on your improvisation skills during the afternoon (beginner friendly session)

Its got to be better than being sat in front of the TV watching ‘The Great Escape for the umpteenth time, or a good excuse to loose the relatives for the day.  Its also a great opportunity to show off any saxophone related gadgets and toys that Santa may have brought you.

 

Come and join us for a great days music making in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

To book or chat call 07736 471861 or email staxofsax@gmail.com

 

Please feel free to pass the flyer on to as many people as you can.

 

Look forward to hearing from you

 

Dave
