“I was fortunate to take several private lessons with Pat MacGibbon a couple of years ago while attending the CYMC summer jazz workshop he directed on Vancouver Island.

He genuinely cares about his students’ development, and anyone who gets the opportunity to study with him will greatly benefit. I am honored to recommend him as an instructor. He’s the real deal.”

Connor Stewart, multi award-winning saxophonist and Fraser MacPherson scholarship recipient

This is a first-class manual that any musician – or even non-musician – can use to succeed on their own terms…”
