“Making the Saxophone Swing”

Show More Info

2:30pm-5:00pm
This workshop for woodwind players explores how to make your phrases swing from a technical standpoint. Anton Schwartz presents different flavors of swinging, from down and dirty to light and nimble, and considers the various tools used to create them: rhythmic variation, accents, articulations and inflections. Participants listen to recorded examples and live demonstrations, and apply the ideas on their instruments. Appropriate for saxophonists, flutists and clarinetists. Bring your instrument (optional but encouraged).

Clinic

“Practicing Better”

Show More Info

11:00am-1:00pm
Musical mastery requires a lot of time. So let’s not waste any more time practicing the wrong way. In recent years, psychological experiments on skill acquisition have given a lot of new results about how most efficiently to develop memories and skills that last… and some of the results are quite powerful and counterintuitive. In this workshop we explore a number of findings and their concrete application to how we should practice.
