Learn With Me

When I started teaching, the first questions I was asked were:

"How did the teacher start?", "What did you study?", "What did you hear?"

Well, I felt that sharing with all the saxophonists and musicians some of the knowledge and methods used by me could be interesting.

For that purpose I am creating articles on this page and passing material to everyone.

I hope it is useful!

Soil Transcription

One of the habits I created from an early age was listening to the radio, CD's by saxophonists or even POP music with saxophone solos and playing simultaneously with the music.

In the beginning, I didn't write solos, memorized and played repeatedly until I captured everything that was on the solos besides the notes.

The most important thing is to imitate the sound, articulation, and the intent of each sentence. For me, notes are just an object of work.

I advise everyone to transcribe the soil with which they identify, because all the details will make you have a better image of yourself and will guide you to genius.

In the next phase I started to write all the solos that I felt had material that suited me.

I leave here all the material available to download the sheet music in PDF and the respective audios. The PDFs are in Eb and Bb depending on the Saxophone Solo (Alto, Soprano and Tenor).

I share all the content I have gathered over the years.
