Want to start playing a versatile wind instrument? Or have you played the saxophone and want to deepen your knowledge? Do you want to learn new songs or work with your technique and tone formation?

Our teacher Jon Mellerby will help you to get started with the instrument or to go further in your development!

 Target audience

Children and adults. All lessons are personalised so no prior knowledge is required.


  • 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.
