Saxophone Summer School Reviews


Rob & Andy

Many thanks again for such a good week. I had a great time and learnt things from both of you & Sally which I will try to put into practice.

The particular stuff I enjoyed and found valuable were
-          Rob’s ensemble on the tough stuff
-          Playing through Andy’s charts with the rhythm section
-          The chance to play in a quartet with three good players
-          A one-to-one lesson to work on vibrato for orchestral playing.

All good wishes till our paths next cross.


 Hi Guys and Sally,

Just a quick thank you for a fabulous course at Harrogate last week.

Had a great time, was seriously challenged, inspired and overall thoroughly enjoyed it. Just loved how serious the music making was but friendly and relaxed at the same time.



Hello Rob

A belated thank you for the marvellous course at Harrogate. What a delight to play with so many different musicians (especially those talented youngsters) and to receive such great direction. Your 'stern' demeanour tempered with humour was exactly right!
Thanks also for the opportunity to perform a couple of my pieces. 
I look forward to next year and the sax day at the RNCM.
Best wishes
Pauline Gordon

Dear Rob,

Many thanks for all your help and encouragement once again at Harrogate.
It was another terrific course and a pleasure to meet so many old friends and of course to make new ones.

Please pass on my thanks to Andy for all his work, it was nice to graduate to the middle group this year and even to improvise a solo! Did I really do that?

All things being equal I would expect to return once again next year and it will be a real pleasure to meet you and Andy once again.

Many thanks and best wishes

Alastair Stenhouse
