Hi. I'm 46 and live in Branford CT. Just started playing the tenor sax. I've always wanted to learn how to play the sax since I was a kid. When in intermediate school I did not know what the sax was called & tried to explain it to the music teacher but end up with the trumbone, which I only played for 2 years. It's been so long that I'm having to learn how to read music all over again. Practice practice practice.

Welcome to the cafe billeroy :)

Plenty on here in the same situation as you regards late starters (me also at 48 and a half) same applies to me with the reading it's a lot to take in and learn without any prior music knowledge but enjoyable :D
Good luck with middle G

Hi Billeroy!

A Big Welcome to the Cafe from The Skabertawe Lites down by yer in Wales, look you! Hope you get lots of benefit from being a member here, especially now your language skills have improved enough to actually get a sax. The trombone is the one without buttons, if that is any help.

Kind regards
Tom

And thrice welcome Billeroy. What Tom omitted to mention is the similarity between the two instruments - it is advisable to blow through the smaller end.

And what they both failed to mention is to always point the fat end towards people you have little regard for (whilst your learning anyway!)
