My Summer Playlists

I realise that getting your practice in during the summer can be tough, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do some useful music related activities if you’re at the beach right now!

I’ve put together some playlists on Apple Music & Spotify to share with you over the holidays. One of them is a playlist of all the transcription projects that you can find on the Cambridge Saxophone website, the other is a mammoth Blue Note playlist with over 3 days worth of albums!

If you have other playlists then this app (Songshift) can help you transfer playlists between different streaming services!

Spotify (you can listen to Spotify for free, but with adverts)

I hope you will enjoy these playlists! Music streaming is an incredible resource for any music student and I urge you to take advantage of these whilst you’re away.

‘Take Five’ Transcription – Your Responses

Part of my vision for creating this Cambridge Saxophone website was so that my students could learn in a community, no matter where you are in the world. The technology available today is fantastic at bringing people closer and closer together.

And so here are YOUR video responses to the transcription exercise on ‘Take Five’. Remember, it is only YOU who knows how much you really should have done with this. Even if you’re not sure about sending a video in, I urge you to give it a go! We’re all nervous about hitting that red button and the only way you will improve your ‘performances’ is to keep on doing them!
