Eduardo was our first ever UberCourse participant. Joining us in late July and Early August, he brought with him one of our hardest Uberhaul horns, but we were up for the challenge, as was Eduardo. Here are some shots from his course:
“The UberHaul Course, has been my best training experience. I learned lots of awesome tricks for making my work with saxophones better, but the most important is how Curt showed me the right way to work fast and well, the organization of the workshop and why the steps they have are the best way. Curt and the ProShop Guys are awesome and amazing teachers, and the course was incredible” -Eduardo Caicedo, Columbia, South America
Go and Daniel
Go and Daniel joined us all the way from South Korea for their UberCourses. Armed with determination they came out of the course with some really lovely UberHauled horns.
Sylvia came to us all the way from The Netherlands!
Martin is a very thoughtful and caring person, as well as a technician, and I’ve been proud to watch his progress over the years as his saxophone repair and restoration business has grown and flourished.
Additionally, Martin is an accomplished saxophonist, performing with the US Army Band “Pershing’s Own” for over twenty years. Martin received his master’s in Saxophone Performance from George Mason University, his master’s in Music Theory from FSU, and Doctorate of Music- ABD from FSU as well. His Big Bend Saxophone Studio in Tallahassee, FL, regularly sends students to Florida All-State Band and All District.
Martin explained his decision to take the Ubercouse: “I see these two weeks as a sort of graduate school. I’m no beginner by any means, but there are so many things I can do better. I think I can become quicker, certainly, by becoming more efficient. But my time is my own. What I’m really interested in is making a saxophone play as well as it possibly can. The Uberhaul. I think I’m close, but just as in playing an instrument, the final parts of the journey are the hardest. I’m very excited to begin making that climb.”
Martin’s already made himself at home at his new bench here at the shop and I know we’re going to have a great time with him the next two weeks!
