Joining Online Sax Academy was one of the best experiences of my life. He helps and supports me, always gives me positive inspiration. I was amazed at how easily he can help and teach me, and his patience and knowledge are admirable. He not only teaches me to my level, but what is more important he develops my knowledge and improves it continuously.

In the OSA I found something exceptional; useful tutorials on playing and improvising along with enjoyable arrangements of actual songs. The material is not only fulfilling to play but shows how the cogs and wheels of the tutorials can be applied, in practice, to create solos and interest.
