I am a professional saxophonist and instructor with master’s degree. In addition to more than 20 years of teaching, I have extensive musical performance experience and have played a large number of concerts, TV shows and tours by now. Over the past few years, I had the chance to perform alongside musicians as Quincy Jones, Michael Bublé, The Manhattan Transfer and many others. Originally from Zurich/Switzerland, I am now based as a freelance musician in Montreal.
Master’s degree in 2001 at the Bern University of the Arts/Switzerland. I continued my musical education in a number of workshops with saxophonists such as legendary Jerry Bergonzi, Dave Liebman, Bob Mintzer and James Moody.
Since I have completed my studies, I have been teaching saxophone for more than 20 years. From beginner to advanced, age 9 to 99. Musical versatility is one of my strengths and I am therefore regularly asked to play in jazz or cover bands, in musical shows, at recording sessions or as live act with DJs. I also work with my own band that specializes in live music for weddings, corporate and private events. More information at www.j-sax.ca
My classes are adapted to the skill level, learning style and individual music wishes of each student. We will focus on finger technique, intonation, articulation and sound production and I am going to show you how to practice enjoyable and efficient to get more done in less time. In my lessons I usually work with backing tracks. It is a pleasure to practice with these tracks and it almost feels like playing with a real band. I teach everything from Top 40 (e.g. Rihanna, Adele) to Jazz improvisation to your favorite song. Whatever your goals are, I can help you achieve them!
I am flexible and can easily adapt to student’s schedule.
I can do lessons in my studio or online.
