Hi Jeanette, thanks for approving my account and hello to everyone. I’ve come back in playing after 30yr break (as my short bio) looking for some advice/help from all please to get back and playing. I took a chance and straight ordered a Yamaha 280 tenor, got it yesterday and very pleased with it great tone easy to play.

Thanks everyone. Had my first few blows and not to disappointed. Managed to blow in reasonable tune but leaking air a bit! Any advice would be welcome. Thanks again for the welcome

Welcome to the Cafe. Excellent choice of saxophone. The leaking air will stop as your embouchure gets stronger. I’m assuming it leaked from your mouth and not the horn.

I think it’s more leaking around the lips/mouth! I haven’t blown for about 30 years
