"I've spent 25 years working in every part of the music business - let me share my knowledge with you"
Nigel McGill Sax School Founder
I've been very fortunate to have worked in just about every aspect of the music business over the last 25 years.
You may have heard my playing on TV sessions I've recorded for shows like "24" and "Bones".
For more than a decade I ran the big band for one of the most popular shows in Europe - "Rat Pack Live From Las Vegas".
I've also conducted tours across Europe and performed with Symphony Orchestras.
As a jazz musician I've performed thousands of shows in clubs, theatres, and festivals across Europe, Japan, Australia and Canada.
Over all this time I've learned a lot about playing saxophone, but also about teaching saxophone.
Let me share my knowledge with you!
With a simple, easy to navigate members area, Sax School is a breeze to use on any device. Simply choose the “Pathway” that suits you and work through the lessons to achieve your goals.
"Your system of teaching has made my sax playing a possibility! I'm a front man in a rock band, but wanted to play sax too. I started studying with Sax School and 60 days later was playing live - I've been playing with the band every night since then! Thanks a million."
