Welcome to Saxtherapy

Welcome to Saxtherapy. My name is Steve Masters, I have been playing the Saxophone for around 28 years. I play in a large concert windband and run their music library, in addition, I play lead Altoist in a Big Band and I drum in a pop/R&B band. I have for many years, been passionate about all genres of music and playing the saxophone. I was inspired by openings from 'Baker Street', Canonball Adderley's 'St. Louis Blues' and many more. This is a snippet of my version of 'The Wedding Song' I recorded recently. The Saxophone is a very versatile instrument used in all genres of music. I think if you asked anybody what instrument they would be keen to learn, the Saxophone would be close to being the most popular choice.

If you have some spare time during the day or evening and wish to take up a new rewarding hobby, or improve your playing, then this may be of interest to you. I will be launching Saxtherapy in 2018 offering individual beginners lessons with a view to forming beginners groups of up to four in my studio at home. At the group stage, there will be a necessity to learn more, however, this will be very informal, sociable and rewarding. If you are a complete novice and do not have an instrument, that will not be a problem, I will let you have use of one during each of the lessons you have booked, I will give you your first reed (included) free, to use throughout your time with me. The prices I quote for the group sessions, include two hours of tuition and short discussion, the use of a saxophone, if needed, during the lessons, tea/coffee and biscuits, all the music material required and a short general discussion about the styles of music you enjoy and your ambitions for the future. What ever level you are at or want to achieve, I want to make you comfortable and relaxed playing with others in a non-judgemental environment. There will be a six week block course for beginners, once formed, Monday afternoons from 3pm til 5pm and Tuesday evenings from 7pm til 9pm. It is recommended that as a complete novice, your have some individual lessons to gain some playing experience before joining a beginners group session. 

individual lessons are ideal if you think you need a 'Kick Start' to playing the saxophone. You will also have free use of an instrument during your lessons and a free reed. Thank you for your visit. If you have any question please contact me.

If you do not get the opportunity to go out and play in a jazz band, or feel you are not quite ready to play in public, then why not have a go at playing some jazz at home with your very own rhythm section? I can produce a backing track for almost any jazz standard in any key and at any tempo you feel comfortable with. Why not use a backing track as a study piece? Or even perform to family and friends. If you already play the saxophone and have lessons with me, I will produce a free backing track for you for every lesson you book or have booked and paid for. As you progress, I will re-produce your track at a faster tempo to reflect your improvements through lessons. 

If you do not have lessons through me, but would still like to have some jazz backing tracks, then you can order them from me for £1.50 each by emailing me the song title, the key you would like to play the piece in and the tempo you wish to use. Happy Playing
