There are four ways we can connect to get into the nitty-gritty of music making:
1. Private lessons – I do these infrequently. You probably want option #2 (but just don’t know it yet).
2. Online Saxophone Lessons (Bob’s Virtual Studio) – The most convenient, cost-effective, and thorough option. Over the past 7 years I’ve made hundreds of video lessons and dozens of courses to help folks become stronger saxophonists and more confident improvisers. Think of it like ongoing semi-private lessons (yes, you can get personal feedback) with a deep archive of supporting video lessons. The New York Times even featured my virtual studio! Pretty cool.
3. Master classes & clinics – Love doing these! One of my favorite things, actually. But we’ll need to find a time that works for us both, get me there, etc. You know, logistics.
4. Inside:Outside Retreat for Saxophonists – This annual summer camp for adult saxophonists falls under the category of “not to be missed!” 2017 will be our third year. Some of our campers have called the experience “life-changing.” Who’s it for? Probably you. So far our campers have ranged from a 17-year-old prodigy to a 68-year-old “returning to the saxophone” and over 100 men and women in between. Last year Tom, an airline pilot from Atlanta, blew me away with some funky-as-hell alto playing during the final concert. Right next to him was Will, a prison minister who’s only “performance” time in day-to-day life is playing once a month for prison inmates. I’m telling you, this camp is a special experience. You should join us this year.
