Are you new to the sax? Unsure of which saxophone you should be learning on? I’m here to help…

The short answer is I always recommend that people start learning on an Alto Saxophone.

“Why?” you might ask…

So, as you might have gathered I’ve been teaching for quite a few years now and during that time I have literally taught hundreds of saxophone students. I’ve taught complete beginners (both adults and children) right the way through to advanced level students studying for their performance based degrees at the London College of Music.

I’ve seen how a lot of people handle and can cope with the various types of saxophone at different stages of their advancement and have drawn some conclusions.
