  • Article published in Saxophone Life

    Article published in Saxophone Life

    I was recently approached to write an article for Saxophone Life a rather good new digital saxophone magazine!

    Wanting to include some more classical focused articles in Saxophone Life, Nigel McGill the founder asked if I could write a piece about a seminal classical saxophone figure.

    After some thought I decided to write a profile piece about the great Fred Hemke!

    The article was published in this months issue (May), and is my first ever "published" piece of writing! It's great to see saxophone based publications like Saxophone Life and Saxophone Today founded and edited by David J. Gibson both digitally based making a come back after the end of Saxophone Journal.  Check these publications out!
