If you enjoy CafeSaxophone or find it a useful resource, there are many ways you can support us, with or without any kind of financial outlay.

Write an Article
Do you have something to say about a player, an instrument or a teaching method?

Transcriptions, downloads, learning materials, equipment reviews, product announcements. It's all useful.

Part of our financial support comes from advertising. We prefer not to have too many distracting banners. However it is useful for any sponsors if the forum is an active place where saxophone players come to discuss stuff or maybe just chew the saxophone fat.

Along with our other saxophone site Taming TheSaxophone, this is a non profit making organisation. All profits from sales, account subscriptions, listing fees is donated. Advertising revenue goes towards running costs.

We have raised over £70,000 in the last 10 years, for which I’d like to heartily thank everyone who has donated or bought something from the store.

Recent projects

2016

We raised over £10000 for Langside School, Poole, Dorset in order to buy a Soundbeam 5 Complete Kit as well as paying for staff training and workshops.

I visited Langside and met with Chris Maund. Most of the pupils need one to one attention, the staff are totally dedicated, enthusiastic and dynamic.but sorely in need of funds. The staff are even having to bring in their own musical instruments to help with classes.

2014-2015: Victoria School and Childrens’ Home

We raised £10000 to buy an Omivista Projection System to help with special needs music education at Victoria School, Poole.

2013-2014: Heaton School
We teamed up with Doug Briggs. With Doug’s expertise in the area of assistive music technology we can effectively channel the proceeds of sales so we know it goes where it can do the most good. Currently we have been funding a music programme at Heaton School for children with severe learning disabilities. We are buying musical instruments, assistive music technology such as the Apollo system as well as funding a performance in 2014.
