Timbre and Intonation

With the exercise proposed by Miguel Ángel Lorente (a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale, France, usual guest artist in major Spanish orchestras, and Professor of Saxophone at Musikene, Spain) in this lesson, you’ll learn how to control our instrument better, concerning two of the main parameters of music: timbre and tuning. What are you waiting for?

The Inner Saxophone Part 6: Sound Morphology

Concluding this series of lessons, Andrés Gomis (a member of the Sigma Project Quartet, Professor of Saxophone at Katarina Gurska School and the Alfonso X University Madrid, Spain) addresses a fascinating topic: the anatomy of sound.

Playing in an Orchestra

Thanks to the orchestral experience of Miguel Ángel Lorente (a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale, France, Professor of Saxophone at Musikene, Spain, and a usual guest artist in major Spanish orchestras), we have the opportunity to know important topics such as the most common mistakes of any saxophonist during their practice or what we should look at while we play.

The Inner Saxophone Part 5: Timbre

Now, Andrés Gomis (a member of the Sigma Project Quartet, Professor of Saxophone at Katarina Gurska School and the Alfonso X University Madrid, Spain) is talking to us about the timbre of the saxophone, which is precisely one of the most versatile instruments in this sense.

Breathing Part 2

In this second part of his series about breathing, Miguel Ángel Lorente (a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale, France, and Professor of Saxophone at Musikene, Spain) is telling us how to put into practice what we learned in the first part when playing a tempo.

The Inner Saxophone Part 4: Dynamics

Andrés Gomis (a member of the Sigma Project Quartet, Professor of Saxophone at Katarina Gurska School and the Alfonso X University Madrid, Spain) dedicates this lesson to dynamics, one of the most recognized features of the saxophone.

Breathing Part 1

In this pair of lessons, Miguel Ángel Lorente (a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale, France, and Professor of Saxophone at Musikene, Spain) talks to us about breathing efficiency. Do not miss the exercise that changed Miguel Ángel’s life and had him stop avoiding slow movements.

The Inner Saxophone Part 3: Duration

Andrés Gomis (a member of the Sigma Project Quartet, Professor of Saxophone at Katarina Gurska School and the Alfonso X University Madrid, Spain) is talking in this lesson about length/duration, one of the most representative music parameters.

Multiphonics

Whether or not you can make two sounds simultaneously on your saxophone, or if you want to improve your multiphonic technique, this exercise that Miguel Ángel Lorente (a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale, France, and Professor of Saxophone at Musikene, Spain) is sharing will be very useful for you.

The Inner Saxophone Part 2: Range

On this occasion, Andrés Gomis (a member of the Sigma Project Quartet, Professor of Saxophone at Katarina Gurska School and the Alfonso X University Madrid, Spain) goes to the shed, looking at the fundamentals of music, one-by-one, to assimilate them into our instrument. First, range.

Altissimo Register

Is it difficult for you to find harmonics in your sound? Do you have tension and don’t know how to work it out? Thanks to Miguel Ángel Lorente (a member of the Ensemble Multilatérale, France, and Professor of Saxophone at Musikene, Spain), you’ll find everything is more comfortable and more relaxed in your playing.

The Inner Saxophone Part 1: Introduction

Discover the great pedagogue Andrés Gomis (a member of the Sigma Project Quartet, Professor of Saxophone at Katarina Gurska School and the Alfonso X University Madrid, Spain) and his particular vision of music and the saxophone. First, he has us thinking about the origins of music to establish its essential pillars.
