Adam Cook - Saxophonist | Falkirk, Scotland(no reviews)
Based In: Falkirk, Scotland
I'm a saxophone player able to perform in various circumstances. I'm a solo saxophone player, I'm a part of a horn section, I'm an instrumentalist in jazz combos and I'm a saxophone player alongside a DJ. I can be anything for the client.
I have been practicing music since I was about 9 years old and have been performing professionally since I was about 18. I started playing music on the keyboard, and after a few years my teacher at the time suggested I play piano and so I did. A couple years into high school I picked up the saxophone and took lessons. I didn't know a thing about jazz at the time and was nudged into it by my teacher. I loved it and so I continued playing and listening to jazz. I studied music performance at Edinburgh College and received my HND. After I got my HND I decided to join the world as a working musici ... an. During my time at college I learned various skills such as composing, how to work in a studio, and most importantly, how to play alongside other musicians. I learned to love other genres of music other than jazz whilst at college, and decided to take a bash at learning other instruments. I picked up the bass guitar, and although I was self taught, my experience in music made the process a lot easier than expected. As a saxophone player, I own an alto and tenor saxophone, have performed with a soprano and baritone saxophone, and just recently have come to own an EWI.
I've performed in many different groups over the years, with many different musicians in many different locations. I've performed various genres such as jazz, blues, rock, pop, ska, funk and classical. I've done weddings, pub gigs, festivals, large venues and street busking. I'm very experienced at reading music and can play by ear as well. I'm very comfortable with improvising thanks to my jazz background and can follow musical direction as well.
