Welcome to singingsax. My name is Willem Moolenbeek .
I was born in Holland, live in Canada and studied saxophone in Toronto with the legendary concert saxophonist Paul Brodie. Other teachers have included Americans Fred Hemke, Eugene Rousseau and James Houlik.
I taught saxophone at McMaster University in Hamilton from 1987 until 2017. I currently teach at the University of Waterloo (five minute drive as opposed to an hour). I have presented over 2500 workshops in schools as part of the outreach program of the Guelph Youth Music Centre and am an artist clinician for Jupiter saxophones and Vandoren reeds. I have performed with orchestras, choirs and bands across Canada and recorded several discs of chamber music as well as appearing on many recordings of other artists. I have commissioned and premiered works by many Canadian compose
