Jeanette – September 17, 2017:
I first came in to contact with Aldevis Tibaldi via an online forum for saxophone players “Cafe Saxophone.com” We both joined about the same time and then became moderators around the same too. And there the similarity ends.
Al has a lifetime of experience playing, composing and teaching. I started as a nervous totally musically inexperienced 47 year old. Al was always generous sharing his knowledge on the forum and as I found myself in London one weekend (I live near Manchester) I booked a lesson. Al promised it would be the most boring lesson of my life on tuning! It wasn’t. He has a unique way of teaching that doesn’t really feel like a formal lesson. For someone who has regular lessons with a good teacher it was an eye opener to spend time with Aldevis.
He has a fantastic tone on soprano and I don’t. So as I again found myself in London I took the opportunity of a further lesson specifically to address the issues I have on my tone. We got to the bottom of it and I went away with some good advice and exercises to do. I went back today and a marked improvement was noted.
Al is patient, knowledgeable and focussed. I would certainly have more lessons on a regular basis if we lived in the same city and I can recommend him as a tutor at any level of playing, especially for improvisation. I would also recommend him for one off lessons to address specific issues even if you have to travel.
He makes great coffee and can recommend some good wines too, well he is Italian so only to be expected.
Not that bad
