The weeklong Stetson University Saxophone Workshop focuses on the fundamental principles of saxophone performance and includes an emphasis on specialized classes in playing techniques, jazz chamber and FBA all-state audition music.
The Stetson University Saxophone Workshop encompasses chamber music for saxophone ensembles and master and performance classes. All participants audition and play in a saxophone band and in a chamber ensemble beginning on the first day of the workshop. Eligible students may receive a private lesson from one of the faculty, and are eligible to audition to perform a solo during the young artists' concert on Thursday evening. All students perform during Friday evening's chamber music concert. The final concert Saturday morning includes performances of the two saxophone bands.
Participants will be housed in the Stetson University residence halls, eat in the student cafeteria and have access to all campus recreational facilities. Counselors will stay in the residence halls with the participants. Participants are supervised at all times.
To apply to the workshop, please submit a completed application form with a letter of recommendation from your private teacher or school music director.
