About the course

Founder members of the Apollo Saxophone Quartet (est.1985) to recent projects that include composing, performing and directing a full programme of music with American saxophone star Bob Mintzer and the City of Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra, Andy & Jon combine musical imagination and creativity, coupled with a deep love and respect for many and varied styles of music.

 

The aims of the course are to discuss and develop your listening skills, music appreciation, saxophone technique, sound production, performing as part of a saxophone ensemble and explore outlets for your musical expression. You may learn a piece of music that you thought was musically beyond you, or perhaps compose a piece of music that you record and film during your Music Retreat.

 

With numbers capped at twelve and with two experienced tutors, you will have plenty of contact time with Jon & Andy, individually and in a group setting.

 

We’d love to work with you whatever your musical background and tastes. Five action-packed days of saxophone activities full of fun and fulfilment, giving immediate and longer term musical rewards and a large serving of ‘food for thought’ to take away! 

 

Be a part of the first Music Retreats Saxophone Course!


Tutors: Andy Scott & Jon Rebbeck
