chords and strumming patterns, which is what guitarists

play along with recordings or other musicians. If the
student is interested in something else, I am happy to
discuss that with them. I teach rock, blues, alternative,
country, popular music.

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....

Most musicians remember tuning their
instrument with a pitch pipe... a small set of pipes or a
circular device that you would blow air through to get
the pitch you need -- this was before the invention of
digital technology. Then we had tuners with needles and
you could play a note with your instrument or voice, and
the needle would tell you if your pitch was sharp or flat.
Now we have digital tuners with lights that let us know
when we are in tune. This works well for one person
tuning an instrument or checking the pitch of a voice. A
while ago a company that actually manufactured metronomes
inside the united states of America manufactured an item
called the Franz IMP 2000 Integrated metronome &
pitch pipe. This item was widely used by singing groups
such as Sweet Adelines, barber sharp quartets, and other
choral groups... but sadly is no longer manufactured as
Franz is no longer in business.
The IMP 2000 had a loud pitch with a great design for
hearing the tone momentarily. The Intelli IMT1000 is now
the closest available mass produced item that has many
features of the Franz IMP 2000.
For more info on the Franz IMP go to www.franzmfg.com/product3.htm .
We now have a modified metronome that directly copied all
of the features of the Franz IMP2000... We have modified
the Matrix Mr 600 Metronome/Pitch pipe. View by clickin
on the the following link - Electronic Pitch
The case is a little larger and the volume is a little
lower, but all of the other features are identical and
some improvements have been made...
The numbers do not wear off of the case as a clear dial
protects the lettering.
The lettering has been much larger on four of the notes C
- E - G - B ... these are 1/2" high... you can see
these from several feet away .... you can use these as
guides to get to all of the other notes.
The Matrix MR600 has been extremely dependable and has
the lowest problem rate of all of our metronome - pitch
You can order with 2 different type of switches ...
1) a momentary contact switch --- press the button the
sound comes on... let go of the switch and the sound goes
2) a push button switch that you press and the sound
stays on even when you let go of the button... press the
button again and the sound goes off..
