Joe Allard (December 31, 1910 – May 3, 1991), a native of Lowell, MA,was a famous saxophone and clarinet professor at Juilliard, The New England Conservatory and The Manhattan School of Music. Some of his most famous students were: Michael Brecker, Eddie Daniels, Bob Berg, Dave Liebman, Paul Winter, Steve Grossman, Kenneth Radnofsky, Bill Pierce and many many others.
Joe Allard was a world renowned woodwind teacher. I have heard his name mentioned countless times but I was never lucky enough to take a lesson with him or hear him teach. I just found these 4 videos on youtube of him teaching some of his concepts to a former student of his. I haven’t even watched all of them yet but I wanted to get them up here for you to enjoy and learn from. I’m going to go watch them right now. I’m so excited!!!! Enjoy!
