About this book
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 elementary level (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, ‘fact files’ and ‘quizzes’ to teach notation and general musicianship, helpful, clear ‘fingering charts’ and ‘rhythm boxes’ and great illustrations.
This teacher’s book contains piano accompaniments and 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.
