Curt's Sax repair clinic 11:00- 12:30. October 16th. UNCG.
My friend Dr. Steve Stusek has asked me to talk to participants of the UNC Greensboro Sax Day. I am going use this time to dispel some myths about saxophone intonation and tone, give participants a clear understanding of why the saxophone is designed the way it is, and teach participants to do some tuning work of their own.
In a short hour and a half clinic, I hope to demonstrate what it means to tune and tone the saxophone, give practical solutions to some common saxophone problems and provide some of the techniques necessary to make a saxophone play more in tune and with a more even tone. After the clinic, I will be around to answer questions and do some one-on-one tuning assessments. This clinic and the entire Sax Day are free and open to the public. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about your instrument! See you there!
Here is an Email that was forwarded to my by Dr. Stusek.
On Saturday, October 16, UNCG will once again host the Carolina Saxophone Symposium.
