Description

Saxophone Basics is a landmark method by one of the leading figures in saxophone education. It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to about Grade 2. There are 22 stages, each section includes a wonderful variety of concert pieces from the great composers, traditional tunes and fun, original exercises, 'finger gyms' and 'warm ups' to help establish a sound technique, 'factfiles' and 'quizzes' to teach notation and general musicianship, helpful, clear 'fingering charts' and 'rhythm boxes' and great illustrations.

This Book/CD edition for alto saxophone is the perfect resource as the CD contains all the accompaniments to all the pieces as well as providing additional parts for the duets and trios. It is most suitable for those wanting to teach themselves. There is a book only edition available and for those that have the book, but not the CD, a separate accompaniment CD is also available. There are separate Teachers's Books for Alto Saxophone and Tenor Saxophone, which offers tips on how to approach new techniques and motivate young players. This book would be particularly helpful for teachers who are not clarinet specialists.
