Saxophone Section Workshop with Lana Law
17 May @ 7:00 PM - 19 May @ 4:30 PM
Ever wondered how those professional Big Bands sound so good? It’s the little things that make the difference in a saxophone section. Lana Law lifts the curtain on how to play better as a section. In this workshop you will discover the secrets of phrasing, length of notes, articulation, blending and balance. Dynamics are key, and Lana will talk about when to follow the leader and how to take charge of the melody line.
Bring your saxophone and be ready to play!
