Hi All
Complete Sax virgin. Joint up here last week hoping to get lots of help.

Got a Alto sax from UKsaxhire(shameless plug) and I am enjoying the noise that comes out of it, although may others including the dog dont.
I have bought a few books and i am currently plodding through them.
I have also managed to track down a sax teacher local to me, and have a lesson once a week.

Can anyone recommend a source for learning to read music. My books so far are full of small fingering drawings.

Regards
wizard

Welcome to the cafe and sax, find a music book for beginners and start reading :)

Has your tutor recommended anything? Probably best to ask their advice, most books teach you to read as you learn to finger the notes.

Hello and a warm welcome to the cafe. Most of us learn to read music as we learn to play our instrument. Your teacher may have a preferred method you could go with. If not, Peter Wastell's "Learn As You Play The Saxophone" will do the job. We are spoiled for choice with similar books. Have fun.

The book we are currently working out of is by Sue Berry Play alto sax.
