The Saxophone Super Food Practise Routine is a 10 minute practise routine for saxophonists who don't have enough time to play.
Each part of the routine is designed to maximise your development, even in a short space of time!
"I have been learning a lot from you. For this reason, everyone has been complimenting me on how my playing the sax has improved."
- Jean Elysee (USA)
When you have those few precious moments to play, you want to make the most of your time and keep moving forwards, right? Well this routine gives you the framework to do exactly that!
There are 5 areas, or Super Foods, to the routine and each one of them is essential to developing your playing at a fast rate. Collectively, this practise routine will help you to develop your
- breath control
- air flow
- pitching / tuning
- aural skills / ears
- embouchure strength
- breadth of tone
- sound in general
- finger speed
- playing in time / groove
- creative playing
In this short video course for saxophone, each Super Food is explained and then methods for practising them are demonstrated.
Whilst this course is designed to fit into a 10 minute practise routine, each Super Food can be practised for much longer, so this works as a much longer practise routine too!
This method isn't a miracle cure - one practise alone won't take you to the top! But when you use this method you will be developing all of the above skills. So even if you only have a small amount of time to play, you will still be moving forwards and making the most of the time that you do have!

"A lesson with Matthew goes beyond tuition and learning, it is an inspiration. I already feel transformed by his brilliant approach."
- Ed Norman (UK)
Matthew is a UK based saxophonist & educator. He has been playing professional gigs throughout the UK and in Europe since his early teens and has a thriving teaching practice. His pupils' ages range from 8yrs-80yrs, and their standards span from beginner to professional.
In his early career, Matthew got tips and advice from various musicians which really helped him develop his playing. The creation of SAXOPHONE Studies is a way of him continuing this tradition of sharing the knowledge.
For Matthew, music is a vehicle for creativity and expression, because of this he has always been drawn to improvisation, jazz and blues - although, any soulful music has his attention!
