Kalle Oittinen (b.1988) is a classical saxophonist and saxophone teacher who gets motivation to his work as an artist and teacher from the ongoing process of learning and from sharing the feelings and emotions of musical experiences with other musicians, students and audience.
Oittinen has graduated as a Master of Music from Sibelius-Academy where he was taught by Pekka Savijoki and Joonatan Rautiola. He has also attended many masterclasses in Finland and abroad with the top saxophonists of the world such as Claude Delangle, Vincent David and Arno Bornkamp.
Despite the young age, Oittinen is already an experienced pedagogue and works currently as a lecturer of saxophone in Tampere Conservatory and teaches saxophone also in Tampere University of Applied Sciences and Sibelius-Academy. He has also been a saxophone player in The Guards Band and is regularly working with finnish symphony orchestras and military bands. As a chamber musician Oittinen is a member of the Aava Saxophone Quartet among other groups and projects. Oittinen is a versatile and open-minded musician whose projects vary from traditional classical saxophone groups all the way to funk-band and music theatre.
As a soloist Oittinen has performed with the Sibelius-Academy Symphony Orchestra and Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra and won the 2nd prize in the 8th International Saxophone Competition in Nova Gorica, Slovenia.
In 2018 Oittinen was awarded the Josef Kaartinen Prize and a stipend by the Finnish saxophone association as an credit of the work done for the benefit of saxophone playing.
