"I have observed Zach Woolhouse's presentations on three separate occasions. The visual and aural content is extraordinary and offers a clear path for a teacher's success with young saxophonists." 

- Lynne Jackson - 


The day is broken up into the following topics:

  • equipment

  • 6th Grade Pedagogy

    • embouchure​

    • hand position

    • body balance

    • articulation

    • vibrato

    • note introduction

    • breakdown of the 6th grade year

If the attendee needs to withdraw after May 15th, but before camp has started, the attendee will be refunded for tuition, but NOT for the cost of the starter kit - we order starter kits in advance to ensure they arrive in time for camp, so starter kit orders will begin to be processed after May 15th.

YSI is not responsible for costs incurred by the attendee in preparing for a program that is altered or cancelled. The attendee acknowledges that if they are dismissed or depart for any reason, or choose to leave early from the program, no refunds can be granted. Further, the attendee is responsible for any and all costs of early departure whether for medical reasons, dismissal, personal emergencies or otherwise. These costs include, but may not be limited to medical evacuation and costs, medical treatment, plane, train, taxi or bus fare, meals, accommodations, and compensation and expenses for staff that may accompany the attendee.
