When I began the work on this idea, I wanted to take a different approach to online saxophone lessons. I set out to answer this question:
— What if our learning materials led us through the steps of practice –showing us how– instead of simply telling us what to do?
I believe that a music teacher’s biggest job is to teach the fellow musician how to practice. To show the students how to teach themselves.
When you join the Practice Posse, You’ll get an inside look at the practice habits of professional musicians in a transparent and even vulnerable way. We all have our goals, and I believe that especially if we’re in this for the long term, acquiring good habits sustains us on the path of growing our musicianship.
- You’ve had some prior experience (middle or high school band, etc.) and have always wanted to get back into saxophone lessons.
- You want to learn to improvise and create music in the moment, but don’t know where to start.
- You’re a hungry beginner with a strong drive to learn independently.
- You’re an intermediate player, and you want to develop a process that guarantees you’ll keep improving.
I’ll be honest, I think this type of work is even helpful for advanced players. Think of it as an overhaul for your practice habits.
Thank You for visiting Practice With Me. I’m looking forward to learning about music together!
