Professional saxophonist and certified instructor with more than 20 years of teaching experience.

Musical versatility is one of my strengths. If you have any question, feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you!
Music Background & Credentials
Master’s degree in 2001 at the Bern University of the Arts/Switzerland. I continued my musical education in a number of workshops with saxophonists such as legendary Jerry Bergonzi, Dave Liebman, Bob Mintzer and James Moody.
In addition to more than 20 years of teaching, I have extensive musical performance experience and have played over 1800 concerts, special events, TV shows and tours until now. I am regularly asked to play in jazz or cover bands, in musical shows, at recording sessions or as live act with DJs. I also work with my own band that specializes in live music for weddings, corporate and private events. More information at www.j-sax.ca
Teaching & Other Details
My classes are adapted to the skill level, learning style and individual music wishes of each student. We will focus on finger technique, intonation, articulation and sound production. In my lessons I usually work with backing tracks. It is a pleasure to practice with these tracks and it almost feels like playing with a real band. I teach everything from Top 40 to Jazz to your favorite song, beginner to advanced, age 9 to 99. Whatever your goals are, I can help you achieve them!
I am flexible and can easily adapt to student’s schedule.
Preferred Teaching Place
I can do lessons in my studio in HoMa, at the student’s home or online

Jorg is not only an incredible musician, but a patient and understanding teacher. I have taken several private sessions with him and have learned so much in just a few classes. I would sincerely recommend his services at any level of experience.
