Welcome to the "Introduction to Electronic Wind Instruments" course! If you're new to electronic wind instruments, or you've been struggling to get the hang of your EWI, then this course is for you. My name is Evan Tate, and I'm a professional saxophonist and woodwind instructor with over 30 years of experience on the stage and in the studio. I'm also the author of several music books, including "The Book of EWI".
When I first purchased an EWI, I had trouble adjusting to it and getting the sounds and notes I wanted. I searched for resources online, including YouTube videos and other players, but I couldn't find any books or videos that addressed the challenges I was facing. That's why I created this course - to help other EWI players who are struggling to get started or improve their skills.
In this course, you'll learn the technical aspects of playing an EWI, including the use of octave rollers, fingering suggestions, and other performance techniques. We'll also cover the basics of playing a wind instrument, even if you've never played one before.
Whether you're a beginner or an experienced EWI player, this course will help you overcome the hurdles of playing the instrument and get you on your way to playing the music you love.
I hope that you find this mini-course helpful in your journey to master the EWI. Please feel free to leave your comments and suggestions, as I'm always looking for ways to improve this course and help my students learn and grow.
So, let's get started and unlock the full potential of your EWI!
