Saxophonist Eric Marienthal has joined the ranks of artist instructors at ArtistWorks and has launched the Jazz Saxophone School, a learning site. The new site is described in a press release as “a vast resource for saxophonists of all experience levels to learn online through ArtistWorks, the leader in a new generation of online learning platforms.”

This “next generation” patented Video Exchange® Learning platform, the release states, “enables world-renowned artists and musicians to ‘teach the world’ by presenting their artistic legacy in the form of HD video lessons and direct feedback to subscribing students. Utilizing simple web cams, smartphones, tablets or video cameras, students are able to submit practice videos and get individualized video feedback and guidance from their artist instructors-creating a constantly evolving two-way, online learning experience.”

Marienthal, an alumnus of Berklee College of Music and recipient of Berklee Distinguished Alumnus Award, will teach saxophone on ArtistWorks’ Patented Video Exchange® Learning platform where players have access to a library of multi-camera angle video tutorials and will be able to receive personalized feedback. The patented learning tool will allow students to submit practice videos and receive a custom video response back from Marienthal.

Marienthal has played with prominent musicians such as Al Hirt, Russell Ferrante and fellow ArtistWorks teacher Chuck Leob. Eric was able to play with one of his inspirations Chick Corea in the Chick Corea Elektric Band, and during that time in the band they won two Grammy’s. Eric Marienthal has always had a spark for sharing his knowledge of jazz and the saxophone. Before joining ArtistWorks, he wrote three instructional books and released three instructional videos. ArtistWorks is extremely excited to give Eric Marienthal another outlet for his passion of jazz saxophone.
