Lesson Details

Saxophone

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I specialize in Balkan & Turkish style saxophone and clarinet. If you've never heard this style before, you're in for a treat. Clarinet and sax are used widely throughout Greece, Turkey, and the Balkans, but the approach to the instrument is much different from that of Western cultures. I will teach you the basics of Balkan reed-playing, and delve into the world Makam (Turkish "music theory").

Tano Brock is a 23 year-old singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Born and raised in San Francisco, CA, Tano began studying and performing music at a young age and had an almost super-natural knack for it ever since he began banging on a drum at only a few months old. Throughout his childhood, Tano accompanied his family to various music camps in California where he was exposed to music from all over the world. At 6 years old, he began studying darbuka, a Middle Eastern drum. He then started studying piano at age 7, and at 12 began teaching himself guitar. In his early teens he started playing saxophone/clarinet, as well as exploring the world of digital recording and production. At age 18, he released his self-produced debut solo album “Bandit” (2014) - which garnered significant success and launched his career as a composer for synch licensing. In 2019, Tano graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree focused on Music Production & Engineering. During his time at Berklee, he explored his deep affinity with world music traditions and traveled to Turkey and the Balkans to study with master musicians, and to Cuba to record a session at a studio in La Habana Vieja. He currently leads a Balkan brass band called Sarma Brass Band, which has performed venue such as the Grand Prospect Hall in NYC and the House of Blues in Boston.
