Nottingham Saxophone Weekend
The Hayes, Swanwick, Derbyshire, March 19th - 21st 2010

More than fifty saxophonists from all over the UK enjoyed a packed programme of playing and learning about the saxophone at the Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick.

A tutor team of Alistair Parnell, Sarah Markham, Julia Mills, James Rae, Naomi Sullivan and Nicola Pennill led course participants through a range of sessions including small and large ensembles, jazz, performance workshop, EWI, masterclasses, extended techniques and sight reading.

Concerts from tutors and participants ensured everyone had a chance to listen and to share some great music.

Windblowers were on hand to offer advice and support.

Some comments from course members

"Thank you so much for organising such a fantastic weekend. I really didn't want it to end! ….the tutors were all excellent and a real inspiration. I can't fault any of it."

"Excellent weekend. Tutors were brilliant and it is a privilege to be able to be tutored by them."

"Overall the event was brilliant and the organisation was perfect."

"Overall the standard was higher than other courses attended and the music provided and tutoring were all excellent. Really satisfied, and felt that I learned a great deal. For me, these courses are always about improving, and listening and hearing the tutors play is always a big part of that. The programme was very well thought out."
