VISION & VALUES
"I am committed to nurturing belief in people that they CAN become a musician regardless of age, ability or background. I will fully support you at your own pace with the benefit of many years’ experience as a musician and saxophone teacher. There is a path for all of us to achieve what we really want.”
Martin Genge, March 2017
SAXOPHONE CENTRAL - BRISTOl AREA - LESSONS AND SERVICING
Martin Genge has 40 years experience as a musician and music teacher; playing the saxophone, clarinet, flute and blues harps. He offers saxophone lessons and servicing in the Bristol, Bath and North Somerset areas. He has a strong belief that there is music in all of us waiting to be discovered – teaching is the journey to discovering this – and learning is about breaking the rules and having fun.
Martin has a particular passion for helping adults rediscover their musicality helping those who may or may not have played as a child, to become competent adult musicians by having fun and learning to play with passion.
Martin teaches saxophonists of all ages and abilities.
He has previously taught at both Clifton College, Bristol and Monkton Coombe, and now offers lessons from his base in Yatton, North Somerset – easily accessible from Bristol and the M4/M5 corridors . Martin also offers a mobile teaching service for students in the Bristol region.
All instruments need regular servicing, Martin specialises in servicing all makes and models of saxophone so they achieve their optimum performance and maintain their market value. Saxophones can be delivered to Yatton in North Somerset, or Martin can collect within a 30 mile radius (which covers Bristol and Bath) for a small fee).
If you don’t have a saxophone Martin can source a good pre-loved one and service it for you all at a very competitive price.
However, if you are not ready to invest in a saxophone of your own yet then Martin is able to offer instruments to rent.
“Martin Genge is one of the finest sax players in the South West whose blistering Dexter Gordon influenced solos combine lightening technique with a fine ear for chord changes”
