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.

Education / Certificates

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.

Professional Experience

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

Teaching Approach

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!

Availability

I am flexible and can easily adapt to student’s schedule.
