Samek Music is a single source for all things single-reed. From recordings and publications to tips and educational support to video links and artist interviews we hope you’ll find lots here to interest you.
If you have any questions or comments on any subject related to the clarinet or saxophone, please do get in touch with us. We love to hear from anyone who shares our love of these beautiful instruments and the amazing repertoire.
Discover Victoria’s ground-breaking process that integrates performance science with artistic integrity. Everyone can benefit from OPC and its inspirational approach – from beginner to advanced, professional to amateur, or for interview to presentation. Its strength is its simplicity in responding to questions such as “where do I start?” and “why do anxieties seem to take over?”. Never again will there feel a separation between practice and performance, but instead one powerful and committed process.
