Mauro Senise is a celebrated, Latin GRAMMY winner saxophonist. He wasn’t born with a saxophone in his hand, in fact he hadn’t even picked up a saxophone till the grand age of 20! The Rio born musician might be considered as a late bloomer but in the last four decades he has enjoyed a remarkable career. Mauro Senise has worked with important artists such as Wagner Tiso, Hermeto Pascoal and Egberto Gismonti.

Many budding musicians believe they have to start at a very young age in order to enjoy success. Mauro Senise proves this is not the case. Whilst children may have the advantage of time, adults have life experience to draw on and this can be a great help in learning.
