We’re celebrating reaching 75,000 subscribers on our YouTube Channel with a giveaway. You could win a YEAR of saxophone lessons!
When I started my YouTube channel I made my videos in a bedroom in my old house. You might remember seeing them! We painted the walls black and we made hundreds of videos in that room – not just for the YouTube channel, but also for Sax School.
It’s been the support of people like you that has really helped me to grow the business. And now I’ve managed to move in and build this new studio. It’s been my dream for decades actually to build a studio in my garden. And this is it.
This is the centre for everything that I do for YouTube and also for Sax School. I do all my practicing here and my filming and recordings in here and I absolutely love it.
When I first started making those videos 10 years ago on YouTube, I really had no idea what I was doing. I’d spent decades running bands and leading tours and performing all around the world on my saxophone, but I haven’t actually made a video before.
When I made that decision to start sharing everything that I’ve learned over the last 25 years, on YouTube, it was really only because of the support of YOU that I kept going. Because I started making these videos (and let’s be honest, the first videos were pretty ropey!) but I started to get comments from you. I started getting feedback about what you liked and what you didn’t like, and also questions. People started reaching out to me and connecting and asking me other things about what I was up to, too.
That really encouraged me to keep going and keep making videos.
And I’m so glad I did because we’ve had over 8.6 million views on the YouTube channel over the past few years – and that just blows my mind!
8.6 million people just like you have watched the videos on the Sax School YouTube channel, which is awesome. Thank you so much for your support and your encouragement. It’s kept me going.
Building Sax School
Over the past eight years, the other really exciting thing that’s happened is I’ve built this huge community of saxophone learners. Following on from all the support from YouTube, we’ve created Sax School Online.
And I just can’t believe how that’s grown. From just a few students at the start, now there are thousands of students every day are using the lessons. We’ve got hundreds and hundreds of lessons and over 60 courses. We’ve actually helped over 34,000 students over the past eight years to improve their saxophone playing, which is amazing.
But the best thing is the results from the students are incredible. And we’ve got students from all around the world now that are connecting through Sax School, they’re loving playing saxophone and they’re getting better.
And they’re sharing that knowledge too. We’ve got saxophone students now in Sax School who are running their own YouTube channels, who are making albums, who are running bands, who are getting out and doing all those things that they always dreamed of doing.
Sax School Tutor Team
Now the exciting thing today is that it’s access to those lessons that we are giving away for our 75,000 subscriber giveaway contest.
And now, Sax School is not just about me. We’ve got a fantastic tutor team helping our students inside Sax School. You might have seen the video recently from Fred Vigdor. Fred tours with the legendary Average White Band.
Fred is one of our tutors. We’ve also got Chris, we’ve got Dean from Australia who is a legend of Blues and Ska saxophone and plays with the Melbourne Ska Orchestra.
We’ve also got a bunch of other, very exciting tutors coming on board to help with our new Accelerator program inside Sax School too. Watch out for our announcements coming up in the next few weeks.
Over the past few years we’ve had some of the best saxophone players in the world coming in and doing special masterclasses for our members.
We’ve had Roxy Coss who teaches at the Julliard School of Music, Everette Harp, who is an amazing player. We’ve had Derek Brown talking about his BeatBox Sax, Grace Kelly, and loads of other amazing performers.
These are the best saxophone players in the world – and the great thing about our Masterclasses is that our students can ask them questions and get direct feedback from them.
Here’s how you can enter our competition and win a year of saxophone lessons.
There’s a link above where you can go and enter. And there’s a bunch of different ways you can enter, to increase your chances of winning one of our amazing prizes.

We’re giving away to 3 winners a full year of access to our Sax School Pro program.
There’s 700+ lessons In Sax School Pro, plus over 60 courses. But you also get access to all of our masterclasses. You also get access to our community, where can connect with all the thousands of learners, and get involved with all the different projects going on.
You also get access to our tutors for ongoing support, where you can get help, ask questions, and get direction with what to work on next.
I’m giving away a full year of access to Sax School Pro to three lucky winners.
The Grand Prize
The first prize for our 75,000 subscriber giveaway contest is a full year of access to Sax School Pro plus a month of access to our brand new Accelerator Program with me.
We’ve started the Accelerator Program in the last few months inside Sax School. With Accelerator you have a one-to-one relationship with your tutor. For the winner of our competition, it’s actually going to be with me.
So Accelerator is a video exchange learning system. So you send a video, and then I send you a video back with guidance. And so you get “hand holding” all the way through with learning whatever it is that you want to work on.
Achieve Your Goals
Some of our students are working toward an exam. For some of our students, they’re working toward a big performance. Some students want to overcome a particular skill. It might be someone that’s struggling with altissimo. It could be memorizing tunes, or could be improvising. So all of our students in the Accelerator Program, have got different goals. But the amazing thing is with that one-on-one relationship with your tutor, you get to work through those goals really quickly. And the progress is insane.
So for our lucky first prize winner, you’ll not only get access to Sax School Pro, but you’ll get to work with me for a month in our Accelerator Program. Now that’s normally the accelerator part is £200 per month plus you’ve got access to Sax School. So that’s a really valuable first prize and I’m sure you’re excited to get in and have a chance to win.
