Invented in 1840 by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax, the saxophone has become one of the most loved instruments through its use in a variety of musical styles – including jazz, popular and classical pieces. With a distinctive tone and a variety of different saxophone sizes – including alto, tenor and soprano saxes – this is an instrument that can be enjoyed by anyone. At Prelude School of Music we offer expert lessons on the saxophone – get in touch to find out more.
The clarinet has a distinctive tone quality, and is an excellent instrument to learn with us at Prelude School of Music. It is often used in orchestral music, with clarinets in Bb and A being the most common. It is often used as a solo instrument, with a number of famous concertos written specifically for the clarinet – including by composers such as Aaron Copland and Mozart. In modern music the clarinet is still played regularly as part of jazz ensembles.
Unlike the saxophone or clarinet, the modern flute is reedless – and as an instrument, flutes are among the oldest musical instruments that have been discovered by historians. Playing a modern flute requires very specific control over your technique in order to produce the characteristic sounds of the instrument. Get in touch to book a lesson and we’ll be able to guide you or your child in learning the flute from your very first notes.
