the lockdown workshops


Snake is working on improving the Lockdown Workshops that came out weekly when the UK March lockdown began back in 2020. Snakademy, an online learning system is coming soon. Please email us here if you'd like more information and we'll let you know as soon as we have a release date. They will be subscription based but our aim is to keep them affordable so that they are accessible to all.

This is the full workshop download including 27 tracks and music booklet. Dragonfly, a happy African jazz groove, was written by Snake Davis on one of his many tours of Japan and was first released on his Talking Bird album back at the start of 2008.
Written for alto, tenor, soprano and baritone saxes, clarinet and flute. Examples are given on all instruments except baritone sax and clarinet. Clarinet players use the soprano parts and tracks, baritone players use the alto parts and tracks. There are quick (track 1) and medium (track 2) backing tracks to choose from.

Play the backing track or guide track a few times so that you get to know it, following the tune on the music if you are a music reader.
