They understand the nuances of music and know how to incorporate their unique style and musicality into their performances.

3. Technical Mastery

A great saxophonist must have technical mastery over the instrument, which involves learning fingering, understanding the proper breath control, and mastering the different playing techniques. Technical mastery also includes understanding the intricacies of music theory, scales, and improvisation.

4. Professionalism

Great saxophonists understand the importance of professionalism in the music industry. They are reliable, punctual, and have excellent communication skills. They also dress appropriately for performances and are respectful of their audience.

5. Passion & Commitment

Saxophonist for weddings


Paul was absolutely brilliant at our engagement party. We’ve heard nothing but compliments from our friends about him. He learnt all of our favourite songs and played them wonderfully. Would recommend to anyone!

Nabila and Imran
Engagement Party

Paul responded to our request very quickly. Although he had Gig in the afternoon we was keen to have him play and he still travelled down a good hour + just to come and play for us. We honestly couldn’t have been happier. Any request for songs I made (most of these were less than a week to the event) he learnt and played perfectly. He made me feel at such ease with booking and responded promptly to emails. He mingled well with our party and everyone instantly warmed to him. Quick set up and will cater for any size. Everyone commented on his music and is still very much the talk of the party. We will defiantly be in contact again and hope he will be available to play again for us at some point in the future. 10 out of 10 from us. If you do decide to book you won’t be disappointed.  Again thank you so much for everything !!
