I'm gearing up...for some one on one NYC master class lessons with students that are on a Pro--Advanced level. Or- fast learning semi-pro dedicated players.
The mission of these master class lessons is to OPEN your ears to
_VERTICAL_playing directions based on chord progressions and saxophonistic technique.eg- To enhance your timbral spectrum more vertically through the entire range of your horn.
Full range, via simple displacement... through expanded displacement.
Other topics include;
- Partial displacement of scales
- Cycles & resolution via voice leading
Here is a mini warm up I use to get students to open up more. ( enjoy )
I use one of my unpublished books as a text on this.You get the book and the lessons as well as "hands on" guidance
from me on how to approach this.It can be applied to ANY form or idiom of sax playing. Jazz, funk, free, pop through your own insights.
Also within these one on one master classes...I am presenting a series of studies on pentatonic scale improvisation.
Called the "Pentatonic Quadrants of Creativity."
This is a series of lessons using very advanced pentatonic via EVERY chord type and coming from MORE than just your basic pentatonic direction.
In your interested please contact me. TEP251SAX@AOL.COM.
I teach in NyC.....AS WELL AS...my home studio in PA.
(Near Philly or Allentown)
I also still teach ANY level saxophonist that wants to improve.
And some stuff to shed @;
Enjoy my NyC based student- Meilana.Take a listen to her "sound files". She's working hard! A very dedicated up & coming player.
( She goes to the.. New School )
