Eleven-year-old saxophonist Jake Dodd has won a Selmer saxophone as part of saxophonist and composer Andy Scott’s Lucky Prize Draw Tour. This involved a series of performances and workshops hosted by organisations including music hubs, schools and courses.

The first prize of a new Selmer Seles Alto Saxophone was donated by Selmer Paris. Before receiving it, winner Jake did not own his own saxophone. Additional prizes were donated by Vandoren and Astute Music.

‘Andy’s 2016 tour was an excellent way to reach an important number of devoted saxophone players all over the country,’ said Erik Claeys, Selmer’s sales and promotion manager. ‘Congratulations to Jake and many thanks to all the other participating saxophonists.’
