Instruments:

In teaching instruments, I tend to focus on the fundamentals of music that produce an excellent tone with the proper technique.  The student should also learn how their instrument works, and effortless playing techniques that allow for a wide variety of tone and dynamics.  With jazz students, I teach listeneing skills as well as fundamental elements of jazz theory including chord/scale relationship, melodies and tune learning, one and two handed voicings, articulation and dynamics, and a honed sence of time.  Even at the most elemental level, these elements are important and attainable.  An understanding of these aspects of music will allow greater freedom of expression and passion for the student/performer.

Saxophone Brands: Finding Your Perfect Horn

...years. Now my main horn is a Selmer Mark VI made in 1954. The Mark VI cost about four times what I paid for the Yamaha. That being said, today, the gap in price between buying a vintage horn and buying a modern horn has shrunk significantly. Modern horns’ prices have skyrocketed in the past ten years or so. Modern horns and vintage horns of comparable quality cost about the same today.   Another thing to keep in mind is cost versus value. When you buy something new, it immediately loses value. If you ever decide to resell your horn, a new horn will most likely... Read More

Types of Saxophones

...Michael Brecker, and Clarence Clemmons.   Baritone Saxophone The bari sax is the largest of the four main saxophones. It’s an Eb instrument. It has some cool applications in jazz and funk music. Some well-known bari players include: Gerry Mulligan, Pepper Adams, and Gary Smulyan. The ranges I’ve written out are approximate. It’s common for a bari sax to have a low A, although some are only pitched down to low Bb. Some altos have low As, but it’s not very common. Most altos, as well as tenors and sopranos, are pitched down to low Bb. The upper register of the ... Read More

Why Drummers Use Stick Control

...counting all those repetitions may be more of a distraction than anything.   While the book is designed to rigorously exercise the non-dominant hand, I would go further and suggest that those exercises that lead with whichever is your weaker hand be afforded more practice time. Your weaker hand is more than likely to always be as such, but the goal is to minimize the difference!   Ok, there’s the dry stuff- let’s get on to the fun stuff- expanding Stick Control beyond the snare drum into the whole drum set!   Some Methods of Applying Stick Control to the Drum Set ...

Five Benefits of Music Education

...in their world. This isn’t to say that as music educators we should only focus on the modern ways of music making. For students to completely contextualize how music lives and breathes today, it is important to look back on history and evolution, as it is in any subject. However, if we ignore the way students engage with music outside of the music room or studio, we are likely loosing a population of students who will become lifelong musicians. 2. Learning how to play an instrument (including singing) takes an incredible amount of self-regulation Granted, if a student is entering a ... Read More
