New Teacher Happiness.


Just to update for anyone that's interested. I have a new teacher as of two weeks now, he's great, he addressed a few beginners bad habits I picked up, such as; scooping. This was corrected by going back to the more traditional bottom lip over teeth method that I'd neglected (stupidly). Once my embouchure was improved, a good tone came along too as well as decent volume control and what is apparently a good subtone. Nice.
He's got me going through scales and warm-up/fingering exercises as well as chucking in a few songs too (pink panther, walking on the moon, summertime). I'm really enjoying it and have been practising every day for almost 4 weeks with a couple of exceptions.
I really am loving learning the sax and I can't stop (evidently) banging on about it.

I did originally post this at the end of my "First Lesson Let-Down" thread but thought it deserved its own new thread.

Always great to hear some success and its good news that you have found such a helpful teacher. We all need motivation and someone who cares about our playing - I hgenuinely hope that you get somewhere good with your playing.

Kind regards

That's great to hear, perhaps, if you are genuinely happy with your teacher, you could ask them to add their details to Saxophone Teachers Its on Pete's Taming the Sax website.
