Vision on teaching
Paul Weiling teaches major students of saxophone, and specializes in jazz and improvisation. He also gives a course on saxophone teaching methods, ensemble lessons with special attention to duos, and lessons on improvisation for classically-trained musicians. Outside of his teaching duties, he participates in the conservatory’s mentoring team as a career coach. Paul studied jazz saxophone at the Amsterdam School of Arts with Ferdinand Povel, and classical saxophone repertoire with Henk van Twillert. After graduating with a teaching and performance degree, he continued his studies with former Miles Davis saxophonist David Liebman in New York. He also completed a Master’s of Music at the Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten. As a musician, composer, and producer Paul received five-star reviews from the leading Dutch newspaper ‘De Volkskrant’ for his crossover projects, Compasión (recorded on his CD, “Salmuera”) and Tales of Tala (recorded on his CD, “Untold”). In addition to performing with the John Fillmore Quartet, Trio Son Cubano, and Duo Quartier Latin, Paul is currently working on a solo performance for saxophone, laptop and visuals.
