  • 10.30am: "How to improve your tone" is the first workshop of the day
  • 11.30am:  Graeme shares his improvisation tips in a group session
  • 12.15am: Question and Answer session (If you can't attend, but want to send a question in for Graeme to answer live, then send it to us on Facebook, or email to alice@johnpacker.co.uk.)
  • 1.30pm: Ensemble playing; the day will end with some informal ensemble playing, during which musicians are encouraged to try the various Yamaha saxes available

There are limited spaces available in the workshops, but saxophonists are welcome to simply observe the sessions, in store or vai our Facebook page where we'll be streaming the event live.
