They say that we always have something to learn. Of course, the continuous training of teachers is a matter of great importance. That’s why the Sanganxa Foundation, who is aware of this, has organized an event, especially with saxophone teachers in mind.
The event will occur on July 30 between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, in the Aula Sanganxa, located at the Sanganxa store facilities in Llanera de Ranes (Valencia), the most crucial purpose in mind. The aim is to provide a meeting place to enrich our resources and pedagogical strategies, which will help improve our future students’ results.
This opportunity offers our instrument teachers — who have already finished the semester — a chance to fine-tune their methodology. In just one morning, they will immerse themselves with various speakers’ experiences, share concerns and opinions with other professors, learn about the latest developments in the marketplace (in terms of accessories and reeds), and compare instruments. Participants will attend lectures given by Salva Hernández (saxophonist and technician specialized at the Sanganxa workshop), Fran Giménez (a Sanganxa saxophone specialist), and Eladio Sellés (from Breathing Sax).
Among others, they will discuss topics such as maintenance and repair, issues to be considered in the choice of an instrument for beginners, and systematic breathing.
This last topic will be excitingly approached by Eladio Sallés, from the applicable concepts of sports medicine, and is supported by various accessories to optimize performance. The day will end with a participatory round table where the speakers will share their saxophone pedagogy views.
Concerning the price, registration only costs €20 and includes sample accessories and a gift shirt. So, if you’re interested, keep in mind that spaces are limited, and in an event like this, you need to act fast to acquire a spot.
