My motto is efficient work for maximum pleasure. The idea is to build up a strong foundation of basic technique of the instrument (body, sound, air, time) in order to quickly come to play along your music idols.

With more than 20 years of practice and more than a decade of experience teaching, I've seen and gone through all kinds of mistakes myself which allows me to really know the correct and sane way to play saxophone, effortlessly and beautifully. Moreover, I have played all kinds of music through the years going from Bach to John Cage, from pop to classical to jazz, afro-cuban, brazilian, etc. Therefore, I'll be able to adapt my teaching specifically to your goals and to enlarge your scope of knowledge.

Caution : risks of addiction, immense satisfaction and personal development.

Despite the covid and the distance, the courses are online. Alain is very pedagogical and patient (I'm blond and not so young), and of course a very good saxophonist. I highly recommend him.
With Alain you will progress quickly.

Alain's is an incredibly gifted saxophone teacher. He has been teaching our son who absolutely loves him. His patience and thorough understanding of the music make it a pleasurable experience for all. It is a delight to witness Alain's bring music to life to a teenager who is enjoying the process.
Highly recommended,
