    About the saxophone class

    The Fontys Academy of Music and Performing Arts (AMPA) in Tilburg, hosts one of the largest international saxophone classes in Europe. It focusses on: finding the individual voice of the student; working on a solid basis in technique and music for performances; learning how to act in professional environment; playing lots of chamber music (including a 25 piece saxophone orchestra!); looking for different influences through international masterclasses by saxophone players and other instrumentalists. 

    The saxophone teachers at AMPA, both operating from different perspectives, but unified in their love for the instrument, consider the saxophone world to be the fore-runner in classical music and convey this in every way to their students.  

    A large number of successful and active alumni from the saxophone class, all operating from their own vision, underline the strength of this concept.
