Why should we take private lessons? It is very simple… if you have a good teacher they can show you short cuts to becoming a better player…. they have experience, they have played a lot and they are older… I am not saying you couldn’t learn these things by yourself…. but a good teacher can get you there faster……
“Cip” as he is known is the longest living woodwind player in the Los Angeles studio business… he is of course a legend here in LA… and I think most of the world…. he plays everyting, he is the nicest guy and he is a lot of fun to hang with…. it is his Birthday and in good taste I will not tell you how old he is… just to say he is one of the few peopleI know that is older than me!
Lanny’s Licks are by the Jazz Legend Saxophonist Lanny Morgan… Lanny has donated these beginning patterns to the Rheuben Allen Music Education Foundation for educational use…. NOT FOR SALE!.. Please feel free to download for students at no cost to the teachers or students…
A good woodwind repairman can repair almost all woodwinds… if you specialize like I do in saxophones and clarinets then you get better at doing them…. But once in a while you need to help a school or young player out…. this was one of those times…..
Rheuben Allen Music Education Foundation board member Rick Izumi presented a saxophone to one of the members of the Conrad O. Johnson Music and Fine Arts students… RAEF has supported this foundation for over 10 years now….
There are no short cuts in doing great woodwind repair work…. give your repairman time to do the great job you want and expect….. and I hear from everyoine but I need to practice…. gut you will sound better if your instrument works….
