Welcome to Singingsax, the website of saxophonist Willem Moolenbeek and cyber home of Alphie, the star of his popular children’s programs.
Adolphe Sax’s invention has proven itself to be the most flexible and evocative wind instrument. It is capable of producing an enormous range of sounds and communicating the full gamut of emotions as well as playing virtually every style of music.
“A Star Finds his Twinkle” tells the story of a little star’s view on various aspects of the world using music and drawing to illustrate the points. From Bach to Rock gives the saxophone's perspective on the history of music. These programs for young audiences help make curriculum connections.
