John Seeley

Musician and Private Teacher

Jazz and Saxophone and Big Band Workshops

Currently I am running three workshops a week, this includes an online Jazz and Saxophone Workshop every Wednesday afternoon 2pm - 3.30pm, an in person Jazz and Saxophone Workshop every Thursday evening 7.30pm - 9.30pm and an online Big Band Workshop every Sunday evening 7pm - 8.30pm, please find more details below.

If playing as part of a group appeals to you, why not join John Seeley’s Jazz and Saxophone Group?  

We are a relaxed, friendly, welcoming group and are always looking for more members to join our Jazz family!

The aim of these workshops is to provide a creative and relaxed atmosphere for musicians of all levels, to learn theory aspects of music, develop saxophone technique and gain practical knowledge of performing.

The workshops will explore saxophone and musicianship skills that will enhance the individual and group performer. This includes music theory, methods of practise, sight-reading, improvisation, aural work, and specific concepts to increase your knowledge on the saxophone.

The music used will range from Hard Bop, Modern to Contemporary Jazz and Popular music, and will be arranged to a high level.

The teaching of these workshops focuses on the 4 P's Principle. Posture, Pulse, Phonology, and Personality within the music, devised by Paul Harris.  The method of teaching will follow a style called simultaneous learning. The ingredients of pieces are extracted and worked through by connecting areas of learning as aural, visual, rhythm and improvisation.  These are then placed back into context, allowing the individual a deep understanding of the piece and its musical principles.
