“After years of searching for the right tenor mouthpiece my search is over… SHIVA!!!!”
I’m super excited to be endorsing a company like Theo Wanne who is passionate about evolving and developing their products to the highest innovation. We the musicians, are constantly pushing ourselves to be better while developing our technique and signature sound… what else could we ask for in a relationship? Seriously, I’m inspired to play more than ever after I started playing Theo Wanne mouthpieces. I encourage EVERY saxophonist to give these mouthpieces a try!

Q:What is your internal experience when you feel REALLY connected to the music? A:There’s nothing like being in the zone musically. I’m always striving to to create a mind, body & spirit experience through the music. It’s a vulnerable place to be… but it’s worth it. Improvising and connecting with the other musicians while creating in a spontaneous setting is a feeling like no other.
