A SAFE, CREATIVE & ENCOURAGING ENVIRONMENT
My fundamental motivation for SaxWorld Ensembles is to offer a safe, creative, positive and encouraging environment where Saxophonists can make music together, at varying levels or standards of playing. At each weekly session we shall enjoy exploring a wide landscape of musical genres and styles in the process.
These Ensembles offer a progressive course or route, varying in dimension - starting with the Junior Saxology ensemble (for those at the earlier stages of learning), to more the advanced Saxology (for those who have reached Gr 5 standard and above).
Accumulated ensemble skills, learned from regular experience, will be extremely useful for anyone wishing to move on to either larger or smaller ensembles, in any musical tradition. SaxWorld is an excellent place to learn these ensemble skills and to grow in your playing experience.
Our SaxWorld ensembles are thriving and growing fast. Please do get in touch to find out more about these wonderful ensembles and how you might become a part of our growing community.
SaxWorld : Saxophone Ensembles meeting weekly:
Junior Saxology: (Beginner to Gr 4 standard) - Spaces available

At SaxWorld we do observe all Safeguarding & Covid safety protocol. Anyone wishing to attend or to become a member of SaxWorld, who is over the age of 18, will need to be registered with the DBS Update Service.
CONCERTS, RECITALS & WORKSHOPS
I would like to establish at least one event per term for SaxWorld Ensemble members. This would be an afternoon of rehearsal and playing together, followed by a Concert or Recital (for family, friends and members of the public to attend).
Occasionally we shall also include a Workshop – with visiting friends (saxophonist/performer/composer/specialist tutor/music publisher/specialist woodwind or music shop etc) joining us for a day. I have many contacts/friends within these musical arenas.
Some of these events will be offered more widely, to anyone who might like to attend and benefit from a particular theme or occasion.
I would like to see better opportunities to Perform (along the lines of events that I have organised in the past – Concert Recitals, Annual Pupils’ Recitals and other events). These have been extremely popular and enjoyable.
We are very pleased to hold our weekly rehearsal sessions at St Anne’s Church, part of Earlham Parish & the Mitre Benefice. St Anne’s is located in Colman Road, just off the Norwich ring road, opposite Earlham Library and close to the UEA. There is ample free parking.
If you would like to discover how to become a part of SaxWorld and can commit to weekly SaxWorld sessions (operating during Norfolk Schools Calendar) please do get in touch.
AN INVITATION TO THOSE PLANNING MUSIC EVENTS
We would welcome opportunities to perform at events within the City of Norwich and throughout the County of Norfolk, particularly to assist Charity & Fund-Raising events.
So, please do enquire if you might like an excellent Saxophone Ensemble for your special occasion.
