Ron’s sopranino experience with the compendium

I like all Nick’s material and also the way he plays the soprano saxophone. Both are an inspiration for my personal development on a very challenging member of the saxophone family: the sopraNINO. The compendium contains a lot of useful exercises. But, I realise it’s a very long way to become a non genius.

Soy hispano parlante, vendria muy bien que las indicaciones y observaciones estuvieran en español y en ingles

Recien comence el material esta muy bien, pero la barrera idiomatica sin duda complica la fluidez en el estudio.

Excellent, as usual!

I've been an avid consumer of Nick's work, and the Compendium of Major Approaches and embellishments doesn't dissappoint, as neither of the other dozen of classes I've bought from him. I always recommend people to check out Nick's work!

Infinite ways to be creative with arpeggios

A fabulous program for bringing arpeggios to life. I am just scratching the surface so far and having a lot of fun doing it. The concepts can be applied to minor arpeggios and any scale. The opportunities are endless. A really worthwhile investment in taking your improvisation to the next level and beyond.
