Student Outreach

Student outreach programs introduce young audiences to an eclectic mix of rare and unusual saxophones, famous saxophonists and well known popular melodies associated with Adolphe Sax’s 1846 invention.  Educational content is designed for each academic level and may include clinics, masterclasses and all school assemblies. Elementary school performances will include age appropriate musical selections such as Spiderman Theme, Sponge Bob, When You Wish Upon A Star and Under The Sea while still covering important topics related to jazz history, improvisation, and the mechanics of playing a musical instrument. Junior high age students will be exposed to more advanced musical selections with greater detailed discussions related to jazz history, theory, improvisation, tone production, and ensemble playing. Presentations for high school and college students will also include hands on participation as further advanced techniques related to jazz improvisation are explored. In some cases, students will be invited to perform with the ensemble during clinics and formal concert presentation.  Their unique teaching style and passion for music education is guaranteed to inspire young talent.
