The academic teaching of saxophone in Argentina is a recent activity compared with the teaching of others instruments. The curricula have been modeled in European schools, covering exclusively classical music and, therefore, setting aside the particularities Argentine society express through its own music. Composers have written several works for saxophone including local elements, such as folkloric rhythms and tango language; but the students in the academy are not able to learn them in a methodical manner. The aim of this research is to bring to the surface the gap between what is taught in the saxophone classrooms and what the Argentine society produce and consume in musical terms. As a solution, the author exposes that the inclusion in the academy of some techniques popular musicians use, along with the inclusion of popular elements Argentine society produce, should bring closer to the academy what is musically happening in the real life world.
