Guy Sion was born in 1980 and raised in Ashdod, a small city on Israel Mediterranean coastline were there was not much to do in the afternoons except going to the beach or studying music in the music Conservatory. Guy started playing the Recorder at age seven. At nine he switched to the Alto Saxophone and joined the city of Ashdod youth band. During his years at the Conservatory, Guy played different kinds of saxophones, from the Baritone Sax to the Soprano Sax, toured with the band among other places to Germany, Spain, China and gained knowledge in classical music. At the age of thirteen, after playing a Charlie Parker solo in a lesson, Guy fell in love with Jazz. In 1995 Guy attended a summer workshop at Rimon School of Jazz in Ramat Hasharon. In 1998, two weeks before going to the army, Guy attended a jazz summer workshop in Perugia, Italy, and won a scholarship to Berklee College of Music. Finishing the army in 2000, Guy started studying Jazz music at Rimon School of Jazz. During the two years in Rimon Guy played with several ensembles in- and outside the school. He played with the Hulon Big Band, performed in the Tel Aviv jazz festival and was active in the Israeli jazz scene. In 2001 he won another scholarship to Berklee College of Music, but decided to continue his studies in the Conservatory of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
