Anna W

Instruments:

New York-based flute and saxophone player Anna is a versatile improviser holding both an open respect for the tradition of jazz and a healthy disregard for its more worn conventions.  Her critically acclaimed first album as a leader, Third Floor People (Nowt Records, 2010), is an adventurous release featuring two bassless quartets – one from Montreal, the other from New York. Made up of musicians drawing from diverse influences and backgrounds, Third Floor People is unique in its palpable emotional energy and fearless experimentation. In addition to leading her quartets, Anna also plays in the collective Field Vision; the Martin Krümmling Ensemble, which recently recorded with Mark Turner; the Daniel Jamieson Danjam Orchestra, in which Webber performed with Tony Malaby as well as Jim McNeely and recorded with Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra mainstay John Riley; the Ben Bryden Flying Scot Quintet and Fabian Almazan’s wind sextet, among many others.  She appears on the Grammy-nominated album Urbanus (Concord Records, 2009) by Stefon Harris & Blackout, and has performed with such diverse talents as John Hollenbeck, David Liebman, Ben Street, Lage Lund, and Dave Douglas. She has toured throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe as a leader and a sideperson. She is the winner of the Prix François-Marcaurelle 2010 at the OFF Festival of Jazz in Montreal. She received national recognition as a finalist in the Mary Lou Williams Saxophone Competition in Washington, D.C. In addition, she has been honoured with grants from both the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

He currently is on the faculty of the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, the Rockland Conservatory of Music, and the Concordia Conservatory. Keith received his MM from the Mannes College of Music and his BM from the Aaron Copland School of Music; he also holds a BA in art from Binghamton University.

More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Musika recommends renting a Yamaha, Jupiter, or Selmer saxophone. The student will also need to purchase a few reeds to begin. The strength of reed is measure of a scale of 1-4, 1 being the softest, 4 being the hardest. We recommend starting with a softer reed, a Rico 1.5 or 2.
Having lessons in your home gives you the opportunity to express yourself artistically in the space you feel most comfortable. You let the teacher know what days and times work best, and he or she can come to you for the same price as in-studio lessons!
Our teachers create a customized lesson plan for every student. Topics covered during Musika's sax lessons may include, but are not limited to: correct embouchure formation, how to appropriately shape your lips around the mouthpiece, proper breathing and posture, how to develop a solid tone in low and high registers, how to hold, assemble, and clean the instrument properly, fingerings for notes, and techniques for developing quick finger action, how to read music: rhythms, note names, dynamics, etc, and most importantly, how to have fun playing the saxophone!
Saxophone can be an extremely satisfying instrument to study at any age. Most adults, even without experience, find they are able to progress quickly with consistent instruction and focused practice. The saxophone is great instrument for solo playing or in a group setting.
The saxophone is a fairly durable instrument and can be a great instrument for a young player. However, the student does need to be big enough to hold the instrument, and have the lung capacity to create a supported sound. New players should start on alto sax.
