Saxophone Courses at the London Music School

At the London Music School we run a variety of unique and challenging saxophone courses, from our one year BTEC National Award in Music Performance, to our own LMS Performance and Production Courses. We also offer a variety of part-time courses, and an intensive two-week Summer Course. Our full time courses begin every year in April and October, with new part time courses starting each January, April, July and October. Enrolment is now open for our full time Diploma Courses commencing in April and October 2022. All of our courses are unique and flexible, placing emphasis on what each individual student needs in order to develop their technical ability and practical experience as a musician. We always place emphasis on the need to perform and our students gain varied experience in solo performance, session playing, accompaniment skills and playing in a band.

Saxophone Course Subjects

All of our full time saxophone courses cover the key areas of technical skill associated with playing the sax, such as left and right hand technique, major and minor scales and modes, tone production, section playing, building repertoire, improvisation and soloing. The London Music School offers unrivalled one-to-one tuition, harmony and theory classes, and song-writing and sight-reading lessons. Full time courses include frequent participation in group workshops, rhythm workshops and recording sessions, giving students the opportunity to widen their experience in live performance and recording settings, working with other musicians and accompanying vocalists.

Directed by experienced saxophonist Pete Grogan, our courses aim to take students on a rewarding journey through contemporary music education as they develop their skill and confidence with their instrument. Pete’s year of experience as a teacher and musician make him a really exceptional player, he has worked with many famous artists and appeared on numerous recordings, and was recently nominated for a Mercury Award with his band ‘Led Bib’. Pete’s has experience in and knowledge of all musical styles and teaches them in a way that is accessible to the student.
