  • Note reading: from day one you learn to read and play at the same time. We believe that note reading is necessary in order to develop their skills in the instrument.
  • Rhythm: we clap different rhythms and go through all the sheet music values.
  • Hearing and singing: being able to sing is one of the most important factors in the development of the hearing. We sing different tones that we play and practice recognizing them.
  • Tone formation: we go through the different shades of the saxophone and find our personal "sound". The saxophone should be an extension of the voice.
  • Technology: good technology is a prerequisite for having a varied repertoire. We learn basic saxophone technology.
  • Ergonomics: standing right when playing is incredibly important to avoid future injuries. We test different exercises for back and shoulders to maintain a good posture.
