Before Blowout Sax gigs, we often pair up students to have buddy sessions so students can get together, work on solos, work on tighting up their themes, add and co-ordinate stabs and make being on a stage a pleasure.
This develops a ‘relaxed concentration’ with knowing who you are on stage with and allows student saxophonists to exhibit their real skills.
We have often got fathers and sons, daughters and mums on stage together.
Check out the performance of Tommy Rocksteady after a big group session. Often the students first performance on stage is a group track.
