June 21, 2015 – July 4, 2015
World-renowned saxophonist Kenneth Radnofsky directs the Saxophone Workshop with Assistant Director, Boston University Saxophone Lecturer, Jennifer Bill. Students will participate in seminars, private lessons, chamber music, solo performances, and master classes. Seminars will focus on finding and developing musical and artistic expression concurrent with the development of technique and musicianship.
The workshop will cover all aspects of playing including reed selection and adjustment, intonation, practice techniques, recital and audition preparation, modern saxophone techniques, and saxophone quartet playing.
The workshop will also address all aspects of saxophone performance, including the study of masterworks by Bach, Rachmaninoff, Creston, Ibert, Albright, Denisov, and Lauba. In addition, each student will have the opportunity to perform on the family of saxophones: soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophone.
Students each receive weekly private lessons with the workshop director and assistant director as well as individual time with an accompanist.
The program will conclude with a saxophone solo and ensemble student recital.
