"If the student don't understand, the responsibility lies with the professor. Learn saxophone without effort other than dedicating a little time" Saxophone lessons

Methodology

For any ages and levels. Nothing is impossible if it is properly learned. I’ll work personally for each student and based on his/her objectives.

Basic level: Sound is developed in a practical and effective manner, as well as the tuning and connouncement of all notes in its different positions. The procedure is intended to allow the student to play different tunes in his instrument in a short period of time. The musical reading and the development of useful harmonic and rhythmic techniques will also be incorporated into the improvisation.

Methodology for advanced students: very hard work! ;)
We'll educate the rhythm perception as well as harmonic and melodic. We'll improve technique and sound. We will work on the composition and development of personal targets.

Background

If a class is well given, the content of it is well above the value of the class, unfortunately in the student role, it takes us a long time to appreciate it. In my case, 5 years after the last class with Ricardo Cavalli (Professor from Argentina) I am still learning from his lessons. The value of what one can offer by giving a class is very high and I am willing to return what was given to me.

"(...) I recommend listening to the saxophonist before choosing him as a teacher (...)".

Fede's resume

My mother tongue is Spanish, I speak English as a second language.

(concealed information)

I started studying saxophone at the age of 7 at a jazz institute in Necochea, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Then I graduated as a music teacher, specialized in saxophone at the "Gilardo Gilardi" classical music conservatory, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The last years I have been trained with private jazz teachers, such as Ricardo Cavalli and Guillermo Romero, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Throughout my 23 years of training, I have participated in different groups including 2 classical music orchestras, 3 jazz orchestras and 1 popular music orchestra. Also participate in different formations, playing the saxophone, the clarinet, singing, as a composer and arranger. The last three years I taught jazz ensemble classes, both at the Lennon music institute, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina. As well as within the jazz association La Plata.
I have studied jazz since my childhood. I began to formally study saxophone when I was 7 years old, in a school that put the emphasis on orchestral jazz, "Instituto Orquestal, Juan Carlos Gesualdi" (1994-2004). At 9, I was already part of an orchestra for children between the ages of 9-13. It was called The Little Jazz Band, and we played songs like "The Saints Go Marching In", "Mack the Knife", and "Sixteen Tons." We performed a number of times in theaters, parties, and schools, an experience that enabled us to see jazz as a form of free, spontaneous expression, and in which we were allowed to improvise, leaving formal music theory behind. At 14, I was part of a jazz sextet and began to interpret selections from the CD "Mo' Roots" by Maceo Parker. We performed in schools and theaters in the City of Necochea (pop. About 90,000), located on the south of Buenos Aires Province, where I grew up, as well as and on the two local TV channels.
At 15, I joined a Youth wind orchestra. We played music such as the "Aranjuez Concerto," "Libertango, and "Sing, Sing, Sing." In every group I played, the level of improvisation became more intense, just as the theoretical basis for the improvisation, got more complex as time went on. At 16, I participated as a singer, in a Music Band of my School, and we won two gold medals in the Provincial competition (in Buenos Aires) known as “Torneos Juveniles Bonaerenses”. At the same time as I was playing in the youth orchestra, I organized my own jazz quartet, the “Supernova”. In this group we composed our own tunes and played jazz standards, performed in different auditoriums, and won the prize as the best jazz band in the city. At 17, I joined the Jazz Brass Ensemble, which was a big band. We played "Stompin'at the Savoy," "Take the A Train," "St Louis Blues," among others.
At 18, I left Necochea to study in La Plata, Buenos Aires Province’s capital, (about 30 miles from the city of Buenos Aires), at the Gilardo Gilardi Conservatory (2005-2011), from which I graduated with a degree equivalent to a B.A in Alto Saxophone, and also received a degree,. in Arts, certifying me in Music Education, with an specialization in Saxophone. More than 55 subjects taken with a total average of 8.53.
At 18, I have played in various groups, a quintet where we interpreted themes of Diana Krall, a quartet of Latin jazz and Be-bop and as a sideman musician. I have participated for four years in the conservatory's orchestra, Orvi, with a classic repertoire, playing both alto and tenor sax, as well as clarinet. On the last concert I had with this orchestra, I played the saxophone part in the “Concertino” by Jacques Ibert , composed for Saxophone and Piano.
Troghout my Iast years in Argentina I took private lessons with Professor Ricardo Cavalli (2011-2016), a saxophone player from Buenos Aires. Those were focus on Saxophone, Jazz language based in harmony and improvisation skills. And Guillermo Romero (2016), a piano player who taught me harmony, Jazz language.

In barcelona I took private lessons with Professor Dee Jay Foster (2018). Those classes were focus on jazz language, piano, harmony and improvisation.
