If you are new to the saxophone, your first lesson will involve making sure that your instrument is set up correctly, using a reed and making a good strong sound. Your teacher will also be able to help you learn to read music, if you haven’t done this before.The saxophone can be heard in all sorts of genres of music, so just let you know teacher know what you would like to focus on to make sure you’re getting what you want from your lessons.
Our teachers can teach all saxophones – soprano, alto, tenor and baritone.
Saxophone Lessons For Experienced Players
For a more advanced saxophone player starting with a new teacher here at the Music Place, bring along something you’re familiar with to play in your first lesson. This will help your teacher understand what stage you are at and will help you decide together where you want to progress to.
At the Music Place, we can offer you the chance to work towards ABRSM Classical and Jazz graded exams and can also develop your improvisation skills.
