Saxophone Section Workshop with Lana Law

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!

 

Lana Law picked up the baritone sax at 13 at Burnside High School and knew it was the right instrument for her straight away. After completing her Bachelor of Music (BMus) Degree in Jazz Performance at Massey University she spent time touring the world as a professional musician. Her passion is teaching students and groups, both privately and as an itinerant music teacher and Band Director in schools.  Lana is the co-founder and Music Director of NZ’s first female big band The All Girl Big Band, and Music Director of the Garden City Big Band. She is in high demand as a session musician for many different types of bands, CD recordings and shows.

Introduction to Acrylic Pour Painting

with Judith Clemett

 

 

Students will be shown how to mix paints , mediums and additives, and how to select colours that will have the most impact. They will experiment with a number of different pouring techniques which each achieve a different effect. Expect to produce up to eight unique 24 x 30cm pictures on board. These will need to dry flat overnight so students will need to collect them the following day or, if necessary, I can courier them to your home address following the workshop.

 

Wear old clothes, including old footwear as paint may drip. Aprons will be supplied but you may prefer to bring your own. If possible bring several old rags or hand towels that you don’t mind getting paint stained.

A Fee of $30 per student for supplied materials will be collected by the Tutor.
