SAXQUEST MOUTHPIECE CLINIC – Mike Lomax – Saturday MAY 31 from 2-4PM

When: 2014-05-31

Saxquest will be hosting a mouthpiece clinic at the Saxquest shop Saturday, MAY 31 (2pm-4PM) with world renown woodwind mouthpiece artisan, Mike Lomax. I’d like to take this opportunity to personally invite you (and if you have them, your students). This is a rare chance to meet and talk with a true woodwind mouthpiece¬†expert. If you’ve ever been curious about what makes a clarinet or saxophone mouthpiece work, you don’t want to miss this special FREE event.

This workshop is designed for the student and professional alike and will be geared more towards the clarinet but also applicable to the saxophone. Mr. Lomax will be discussing how mouthpiece design affects your sound, intonation, response, and other elements of playing. He will touch on what to look for when choosing a mouthpiece to ensure the best fit for your playing along with clarinet care basics and much much more. Mr. Lomax will also have mouthpieces for trial as well as the HUMIDIPRO woodwind case for trial and purchase.

Mike Lomax of Lomax Classic Mouthpieces brings fifty years of woodwind repair experience and professional playing and twenty years of mouthpiece design expertise to this workshop for the student or professional woodwind artist. He was principal clarinet with the Springfield Missouri Symphony for twenty-two years, a former member of the U.S. Navy Band, Washington, D.C. and is the owner of LOMAX CLASSIC, which specializes in handcrafted clarinet mouthpieces, accessories, and the HUMIDIPRO woodwind case. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this new case, I can assure you that ITS AMAZING!!!

As most of you know Saxquest has made a serious commitment over the past couple years towards serving the clarinet community in additional to the saxophone community here in the St. Louis area and neighboring states of Missouri and Illinois. This clinic further supports our mission. We’ve hired classically trained clarinetist, Audrey Denny, as a clarinet specialist in our repair shop. She’s been doing great things and has an exquisite touch with regards to tuning and properly setting up a clarinet to the most exacting and discriminating of professional standards. We’re also always committed to stocking a large number of hand-selected professional clarinets in the shop.

Please be part of this cause and join us this Saturday. I’m looking forward to a most educational and interesting clinic and hope to see you there!!!
