Wedding Packages include 3 requests that are not in my list learnt to advanced and with high quality backing tracks.

“Elma sax played at our wedding on Saturday 29th September 2018. She was very organised in the run up to the wedding and was quick to communicate with us about song requests, speakers, and anything else we discussed. On the day Elma was professional and friendly to the guests. She played an amazing set of jazz and pop covers with her own backing music. It was an excellent feature to our wedding and we had compliments from many guests! Thank you Elma- we would highly recommend Elma Sax for weddings, parties or any other events” .  Josephine Barnard

Recording Session 

Studio Sessions available – Please contact 

  • Own studio at high standard
  • can send WAVS online
  • varying styles , defined sound

“I required saxophone work on my debut album … Elma came back with an option in which she would record parts at home and transfer over the stems (Elma was in Barcelona at the time and still keen to be involved). I decided to go with Elma as it enabled more studio time for other work and this was a great move in the end as Elma provided the stems for 6 tracks off the album. They were provided at a high quality, with a high level of flair and wonderful musical expertise (all I sent Elma was sections of the track to play with). There was a great use of style and variety which was needed between the parts and her musical talent shone through. I will definitely work with Elma again and would recommend this option to anyone looking for additional musical embellishment in their work – Elma went above and beyond and was very professional from start-to-finish.”
