This might be a beginner question - but I sometimes find I get a really blowy sound. Generally I feel my embouchure is now OK (though I have only been playing for 1 month) - but I do get this annoying airy sound - any ideas? I am sorry if this is a beginners question
Yes it does. At least find an experienced player that could give you good advice. I mean, a human, not a forum on the internet.I don't have a teacher - I am still looking. Lots of people recommend a teacher - does it really make all that difference?
I agree with this to a point - my view is that you can self teach if you are either an already accomplished musician on another instrument/s, and/or are naturally musical, but I suppose you won't really know if the latter applies if you've not played an instrument before, so I would recommend getting some tuition to establish things initially.If you are a good self teacher then you can manage perfectly well without a teacher, depending what your aims are. ..........
Is this you?The only 'lesson' I had was when I was thinking of buying a saxophone and the gentleman in Curly's showed me how to blow C#, A, B, G. then I taught myself from a book.
Think of the money you would save for GAS attacks.
