First Big Band Concert and the Georg Friedrich Händel Konservatorium

I started learning to play the sax a year and a half ago. I didn’t really know what got into me. I’ve never been a jazz fan. Not even going out to the “Jazz goes to Campus” events for fun. Always had been more of the piano classical type of person. However, being in Halle surrounded by Handel, Bach, and all the other well known composers, made me want to get back into playing music 🎶. Not to mention the opportunity of being taught by professional music teachers, who are also music artists from the Georg Friedrich Händel Konservatorium

A twist from “Moro the Cookbook”: sourdough bread and pistachio dip

Nowadays, you can easily get recipes off the internet but I enjoy having to visualize it on paper and flip the pages manually. Trying random recipes online is like a cat in a sack, you don’t actually know what you will end up with. In most cases, I would twist the recipe to meet my taste and what is available in my fridge

Buying a new cook book to me means having a new commitment. That’s is why it takes weeks until I decide to get one - doing a bit of research before purchasing one. Why is that? I guess I am often sceptical about the recipes. Therefore, I am lured to books that are best sellers and having tonnes of good recommendation. 

One of my recent purchase was the “Moro The Cookbook”.

Sax Manufaktur Marx & Flavoreeds

The other day, I accidentally bumped onto my standing saxophone. *Crash! Due to that, I had quite a bent on the edge of the bell and the keys/tones were messed up. Thinking swiftly, I contacted the German Yamaha office where I could find a place to fix it and whether the warranty covers the damage. Firstly, although my sax is less than 2 years old, the warranty does not cover the damage due to the owner's fault. Secondly, the Yamaha office does not have a service center for brass instruments. They mentioned that I had to go a local sax repair shop within the area I live. I contacted my sax teacher who was still on his trip to the states for a jazz concert and asked if he could recommended me one. He replied and suggested Marx Saxophon Manufaktur, located in Leipzig.
