Teddy Meyer, Los Angeles, CA, via Facebook
Jazz saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi is an internationally recognized jazz performer, composer, author and educator.
Besides being a professor at New England Conservatory, he is the author of seven jazz improvisation books and has performed and/or recorded with Jazz Greats like Mulgrew Miller, Dave Brubeck, Kenny Barron, John Abercrombie, Jack DeJohnette, Steve Swallow, Roy Haynes, and many more.
In this Saxophone Lesson Video, “Teaching Guru” Jerry Bergonzi shares the knowledge he gained in decades of being a professional jazz saxophone player.
Starting with the basics, and moving on to very advanced techniques, Jerry explores ALL aspects of modern saxophone playing.
He explains precise saxophone exercises that will help you push your playing to the next level, in the shortest amount of time.
This material is the result of teaching these saxophone lessons to students all over the world for 30 years – finally available in Video format!
“… chock full of different ideas to get the mind thinking and fingers moving!
There aren't a lot of internationally acclaimed musicians who are also viewed the world over as exceptional teachers; saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi is one of the few.
Bergonzi's presentation here is a bit more informal than on his previous JazzHeaven videos, but it's just as informative.
He gives away “trade secrets,” like alternate fingerings and hand positions, that can help aspiring saxophonists and make advanced players see the instrument in a new way.
Bergonzi teaches by saying and showing, with saxophone in hand, and this blend of the aural and visual helps to clarify things as he bounces from topic to topic.
Saxophone players of all levels and educators looking to pick up some choice informational tidbits will find plenty to chew on.“

“Jerry's approach is the best. He has so many different ways to apply basic information.
As a player and a teacher Jerry's stuff is so darn easy and clear to understand it makes you want to practice.“
Denis DiBlasio, Director of Composition and Jazz Studies at Rowan University, and 5-year Maynard Ferguson Big Band Musical Director
“Despite having played for 12 years, a graduate of the New School Jazz Program & having played with some of the greats in NYC & last not least 2 years of study with the great George Garzone, I now have at my fingertips an opportunity to increase my ability TENFOLD, to say the least. This video is so full of rare gems & revelations that I find myself unable to find the words to explain how excited & inspired I am.
There is enough material on this wonderful DVD to keep me busy for at least a year or two.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this possible!“

“Bergonzi has been codifying and passing along his hard-earned wisdom since he began teaching saxophone lessons in the early 1980s.
Students flock to the New England Conservatory to have the opportunity to study saxophone with this master teacher/player.
And now his knowledge is within reach of anybody who has a DVD player or a computer.” Dan Bilawsky, AllAboutJazz.com
