Woodwind focus: Sax superstar Jess Gillam stops by for a chat about her incredible journey; the professional bassoonist who doubles as a boxing champion shares her top tips for achieving excellence; we take a closer look at the recorder’s important role in music education, as well as hearing from the Red Hot Recorder tutor herself, Sarah Watts; new resources for the ancient ocarina; putting some sturdy saxophone stands to the test; and we’re blown away by some oboe and flute sheet music in the review section.

Plus, the exciting music-adjacent degrees that offer an alternative career approach; doing Carmen in seven minutes with a Year 4 class; a keen-eyed look at Kinsman’s new tuners; carrying out proper risk assessments in your workplace; a dive into the new string syllabuses of ABRSM and Trinity; and a hands-on review of the Acid Pro 8 Freedrum Kit.
