More Information About Saxophone Lessons

Students interested in learning saxophone should start with the alto sax. As the student progresses they may switch to soprano, tenor, or bass sax. Reliable brands to rent include Jupiter, Yamaha, and Selmer. Sax students will also need to purchase reeds. Musika recommends a Rico 1.5 or 2.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Each teacher has his or her own style, but as a new saxophone player you can expect to learn about music theory and note-reading. Other topics covered in a lesson will likely include: instrument care, fingerings for notes and how to develop quick finger action, correct breathing and embouchure formation, and tips for developing a beautiful sound in all registers.
Adults students often notice signicant progress on saxophone. Our teachers work with all levels, older students who are new to the instrument, or adults who formerly played and are now hoping to get back in the groove. Most students are surprised to find how quickly it all comes back!
The saxophone is a fairly durable instrument and can be a great instrument for a young player. However, the student does need to be big enough to hold the instrument, and have the lung capacity to create a supported sound. New players should start on alto sax.
