Saxophone All-State Etude Clinic

This year the Saxophone All-State Etude Clinic will take place virtually in order to keep all students and teachers safe during this unprecedented time. Registration information will be posted by the end of August, and the clinic will take place at the beginning of October.

The goal of the Saxophone All-State Etude Clinic is to give middle and high school students the tools needed to play their best throughout the district and all-state audition process. The saxophone teachers involved come from around the state of Georgia and have extensive teaching experience at all levels. Some of the teachers involved include:

  • Dr. Joe Girard - Columbus State University, tenor saxophonist Sinta Quartet, Selmer Paris Artist
  • Matt Hess - Saxocentric, Selmer Paris Artist
  • Brandyn Taylor - Georgia State University, Reinhardt University, Vandoren Artist Clinician, Selmer Paris Artist

If you have any questions at this time, please contact Dr. Girard at
