Saxophone Lessons By One Of Virginia's Most Intuitive Jazz Saxophonists. For Intermediate To Advanced Students

Once you have a clear concept of how to play the saxophone, your experience playing the horn will be a happier and more satisfying one. That is the beauty of music, you never stop learning.

I occasionally get mature students who come to me after having played for a good while or even a lifetime, who are dissatisfied and frustrated with their playing. In most cases I am able to help such students.

Bucky can help you achieve your goals....

Old Timers Still Got It
-by Cyrus Waters

Over the past several years, I’ve been pleased to notice how many “old timers” remain active in the Shenandoah Valley music scene. When I first moved to Strasburg, I saw a small ad in the local paper that mentioned a “Blue Grass Jam” at the local American Legion. Being a fan of bluegrass, I decided to head over and check things out. Well, the place was packed, and there were at least 10 performers onstage, all jamming out on some old time favorites. They had fiddlers, banjos, a stand up bass, mandolin player, and of course the ubiquitous guitarists all lined up onstage, and everybody was clearly having a good ol' time for themselves. The players would take turns on leading the songs, and the crowd was very responsive and involved.

After looking around, I began to notice that many of the performers were “of a certain age”, but nothing was going to slow them down from what I could see. The best thing about being a musician is that, unlike sports figures, you can continue to grow old, and still perform at the peak of your skills. In fact, many of the musicians we grew up listening to are still performing on stages throughout the world. Like fine wine, musicians seem to only get better with age.

A few months ago, I was fortunate to run into one such player, who’s musical resume was quite extensive and equally impressive. Bucky Clark has been playing the saxophone since he was just a 12- year old kid, and in his 40 odd years of performing, he’s covered more ground than many of us can imagine.

Jazz, Blues, Swing, Rock, even Country, Bucky Clark does it all, and he does it with flair and style. His musical education has been a long road, as he jokingly makes reference to his many stops in “at least 8 or 9 colleges along the way”. Among these was a stint at the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, Shenandoah Music Conservatory, James Madison University, Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as the Army Element School of Music in Norfolk, VA. His live experiences have been equally varied, having played stages from New York City to Boston and now, right here in Charlottesville Virginia.

Bucky does more than just play sax however. He’s the consummate showman, who knows how to get a crowd to sit up and take notice. His unique style and broad ranging musical background assures the listener that they’re at the right place, at the right time. In short, he just makes it fun to be there.

In addition to playing out at select area venues, Bucky also teaches saxophone in Charlottesville. He’s been able to help even the more experienced saxophonists to improve their playing, and always welcomes
beginners too. If you’re planning a wedding, graduation or any special occasion, and you’d like to spice things up with a high caliber musician who can keep your guests’ attention, give him a call:

Ron Newsome Charlottesville VA Drummer/Percussionist

 

In Memory of Ron Newsome
1947 - 2012

Ron Newsome, Drummer/Percussionist, grew up in a musical household Influenced by his Mother, a professional dancer, and his Father’s mastery of the guitar, lead to his love of percussion.

Rhythm and music was a theme that began to take shape for him early on. Playing drums came naturally for Ron, who started at the age of 6 on oatmeal boxes and by the age of 10, he was playing on every piece on furniture in the house.

His parents realized that buying a set of drums was not an option, if they wanted to save the rest of the furniture in the house. Ron inherited those artistic genes and by 14 years of age had his own band and bookings.

Ron was a a “band” drummer. He possessed the social and musical skills necessary to glue a musical group together. He has been a member of, and, led many successful bands with his supportive professional attitude. One of the most successful Top 40 bands was "Sound Trek", which played all throughout Philadelphia for 10 years straight. After that, he played his way to Florida and joined the South West Florida Jazz Society where he had an opportunity to play and learn Jazz from many of the retired greats from the TV industry. Now a resident of Central Virginia, he brings his wealth of experience to a musically rich area.

"My ultimate goal", said Ron, "is to attain a level the likes of Buddy Rich, Art Blakey, and Anton Fig" "These legends not only could make drums swing, they could make them sing. "He further states: "I’ve been playing for many years but as I've often said: 'there’s always something new to learn'. I feel a good musician never finds complacency, never stops leaning; there's always room for improvement. "

Mark Barreres (who runs ShenandoahConnection.com) is not only a great networker, he knows the "ins and outs" of search engine optimization. I highly recommend his services! Jordan Wexler - SmartGuy.com

ShenandoahConnection and WebPromotion.com delivers on what they promise! If being at the top of search engines matters to you, then this is the place to be. Mark Barreres has gone above and beyond on service and for a fraction of the cost of other so called "SEO experts" that charge BIG bucks and do NOT deliver. The difference is the results you will see almost immediately. Best of all they are always here for me on Skype and on the phone. Any business person interested in getting more referrals needs to take web based promotion seriously, and this is the best service out there. - Tara Kenyon - Family Therapy Counseling Raleigh NC

Dear ShenandoahConnection.com, I would like to thank you for all the hard work that you have done to direct customers to my web site. I appreciate the fact that you are here to help me. I had recently been commissioned to supply aerial photographs for ABC Good Morning America because they found me online. Great connect, Great service thanks. David Showalter - Shenandoah Valley Aerial Photography

Moving to a new area in 2006 meant that I would be competing for local business with photographers who had been servicing the community for years, even decades. Mark's services have allowed me to make myself known in the area and build a loyal customer base. I attribute much of my early and continued success to my great search-engine placement, and Mark was the one who put me there. Thank you! - Shenandoah County VA Wedding Photographer - Julie Napear

Our investment paid itself back in less than 24 hrs.  Yeah - I said ONE DAY!!  In the past few years, Mark's work with us has led to huge boosts in search engine traffic, calls, and more importantly... SALES!!  Lots of them. - Northern VA Promotional Products

"Dear ShenandoahConnection.com I would like to thank you for the years of service you have provided to me for my Front Royal VA Real Estate Business. You have come through with my search terms, drove traffic to my site and you have always been there for me." Lonnie Phillips - Shenandoah Valley Agents

"ShenandoahConnection.com works for both my businesses here in Shenandoah County VA. I love looking at the FREE stats program on my Shenandoah River Lodge gets my phone ringing!" Shirley French

"I'm a skeptic, but I also knew that for the fairly low price it would cost me for a year of placement, I could recoup the cost and more with just a few new customers. So, we took what for us was a big risk of being taken by another web guy, and I placed the ad. I was astounded with the results. #1 on Google for both searches! And what's more, within two days of contracting for the ad, I received a piano move order from a customer that was large enough to pay for the ad immediately. In the first month, we added thousands of dollars worth of piano move orders that I can directly attribute to our ad and new piano customers from new territories are presenting themselves to us weekly. Now several months later, we have advertised further with Shenandoahconnection.com affiliated Web pages." - Randolph Byrd,
