More Information About Saxophone Lessons

For a beginning player, we would recommend renting a Jupiter, Yamaha, or Selmer saxophone. Sax students will also need to purchase reeds to play on their instrument. For new players a softer reed is more appropriate. The strength of a reed is measured on a scale from 1-4: 1 being the softest, 4 being the hardest. We recommend starting with a Rico brand 1.5 or 2 reed, however, students should meet with their teacher first before buying reeds in bulk.
Lessons in home are a great way to improve your saxophone skills and save time and money. Taking lessons in your home reduces travel time and expenses and allows you to express yourself musically in the space you know best.
Your saxophone teacher will concentrate on developing a nice tone in all registers, how properly shape your lips around the mouthpiece, correct breathing and posture, and techniques for improving quick finger action. If you are interested in a particular style, we can match you with an instructor who has experience teaching that genre.
Saxophone can be a pleasure to learn at any age or level. We have adults who are total novices, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
The saxophone is a wonderful instrument to begin in elementary or middle school. Young saxophonists are able to progress quickly and many schools have jazz programs that feature sax. Typically, Musika recommends waiting until age 8 before beginning sax lessons.
