Saxophone Lessons Amsterdam
Looking for a enthusiastic saxophone teacher for your child or yourself? Picking up sax lessons after a break? Whether you’re a saxophone player in a band, a ten year old taking your first lesson, or a sixty nine year old returning to playing after many years; welcome for lessons on soprano, alto, tenor or baritone.
Classical to Tango!
I’m Juan Domínguez, a friendly, dedicated teacher and I will share my love of classical, folklore, tango and popular music and help you set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.
My studio is located in Amsterdam, de Baarsjes. Private lessons at your own house in Amsterdam are also possible.
Beginners to Advanced
Playing saxophone is fun and easy with the proper guidance of an enthusiastic and professional saxophone teacher. I balance musicianship and fun to make sure that each lesson presents new technical challenges, inspiration and motivation.
Breathing and Posture
Breathing and Posture are key components when playing a wind instrument. Proper air support ensures that you have control over every note you play so that you can create the right feeling for each song and just the right sound you’r looking for to express your musical ideas and emotions.
Are you interested in the more advanced techniques for the instrument? We can go over the techniques often used in contemporary music such as circular breathing, double staccato, growling and multi-phonics.
