    As a beginner, I find maintaining my embouchure very difficult. Airy sounds. Help

    As a beginner, I find maintaining my embouchure very difficult. I mastered major scales:- D, C, G & A pretty well but last week my tutor added F and B# major scales and it has been so hard. The sounds coming out are airy/breathless. I try relaxing my jaw, reducing my bite but nothing seems to be...

    Saxophones Saxes for beginners or comback players?

    ...Next in turn are two tenors. An "ultra cheap" gfourm (Yani copy) and a 1963 Dörfler & Jörka . Both are ok. I think gfourm is better for a beginner; good ergomoincs and a modern voice. Easier to move to another modern sax from a gfourm. The Dörfler & Jörka is a good sax as well. Body and bell...

    Beginner Switching mouthpieces during practice

    This is an interesting question. I would encourage a beginner to stick with one mouthpiece. After that, go with the flow.

    The Yamaha 4C is a beginner’s mouthpiece. It’s the standard Yamaha includes with new horns. It is one of the better choices to learn on.

    What should a beginner buy? First sax: Yamaha YAS 280 or YAS 62III or Yanagisawa AW01?

    I think the best sax for a beginner, is a sax that has good quality, is in top playing form and a sax that is being played an awful lot :) all those 3 saxes are a beginner's dream.

    Just to repeat what others have said. If you are playing a Bb scale starting on the bottom note of the instrument then that is genuinely hard for a beginner. Try starting at the middle Bb and go down.

    Saxophones First tenor

    I think that loud playing and harsh attacks are fairly normal for a beginner. Just keep practicing and things will get better.

    Transcribing for beginners

    I’ve been planning on transcribing ever since I picked up the saxophone, and on my few attempts got frustrated and gave up, but I don’t want to this time, and I think I have a new plan of attack! I’m going to use the demo track of a ‘play along’ book, why I'd not thought of this before I don't...

    Saxophones Who knows about that tenor?

    Hello. The Paraschos saxes are chinese saxes. Nice beginner horns. They have nothing to do with the quality of their wooden necks.

    Taken from 'Transcribing for beginners' I saw this the other day. A great idea that I use all the time to write melodies but stupidly never as a learning tool. I will be rectifying this error. :thumb: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZdljhmz3CY

    Greetings from Serbia

    Hi, my name is Drasko. I am looking to buy my first sax but I am still unsure alto or tenor.... I personally prefer tenor sax but everybody say that alto is for beginners. And yes, I am beginner :)

    Alternate C#

    I was originally introduced to it as a beginner because I initially found playing C# with no fingers down tricky... If I do use it I use R123

    Beginner Just out of interest

    I'd say this is the more pertinent issue. As a beginner what you need is a decent sax in good working order, which you already have in the 10M, and had in the Hanson. By all means buy the Selmer if it'll make you happy. You can clearly afford it. This is not a problem most of us have!

    What should a beginner buy? First sax: Yamaha YAS 280 or YAS 62III or Yanagisawa AW01?

    IMO all beginners should start on a either a generalist Yamaha 3C or the classical Van Doren optimum AL3 or TL3 (use Van Doren traditional reeds with the optimum, a couple of 1 1/2 and 2s will do to start).

    ...one of the more forgiving instruments when it comes to learning. If you already read music, then you already have a big advantage over most beginners. I was 60 last weekend... but I started in my early 50s... I've struggled with finding time though. Now I am to all intents and purposes...
