Hi, my name is Aaron Bowers, and this website is to promote all of my various musical projects and endeavors. I am a professional saxophone, flute, clarinet, piano player, and teacher working within a number of various different genres. My main goal right now is to provide music for the various events in peoples lives, such as weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries, and anything else you can think of that might be brightened up with a little live music. I try to offer a diverse selection of music to suit any situation, and am always happy to personally discuss the details with a client to help customize your special day. We will always make a point of providing whatever gear we need for an event, unless it’s some sort of giant theater or festival stage with better stuff than us.
I have been personally playing now for over twenty years now, more than half that time I’ve been doing it professionally, to one degree or another. I have achieved degrees in performance from both the Humber and Mohawk schools of music, and have studied privately with some of Canada’s finest saxophone teachers, including Alex Dean, Don Englert, Pat Labarbara, and many others. I mostly play rock, R&B, and jazz, but always have a wonderful time branching out into the classical and pop world, especially on the lighter woodwinds or piano. I am currently involved with many different groups with unique instrumentation, members and styles, which you can find out more about on various tabs with more specific information about each group. My sound and style on the saxophone has been compared to that of Dick Parry, Junior Walker, and Stan Getz, but I am always looking to expand my own playing to incorporate new ideas.
I am proud to say that I teach locally at the wonderful studio KAOS music, as well as privately out of my own home. At this point I have had hundreds of students, many of which have grown in to fine musicians that have pursued music degrees and careers of their own. I am always happy to take on new students to help guide people into making music a regular part of their everyday life.
I have been lucky enough to tour internationally with many different groups, but now prefer to work mostly around southern Ontario. Please check under the performance schedule tab of my page to look for upcoming shows in the area!
