  • Like music like food like jazz!

    Saxophone Teacher (Southampton) Picture Like Music Like Food Like Jazz Listening to one type of music is for instance like eating one thing. Let’s take chips for example. At first they taste great, you may have them with salt, vinegar, cheese, beans etc. But after a while, you will get bored of them, and they will make you fat and...

For 7 - 11 years olds I would recommend starting with either Alto or Soprano due to the fingering and weight of the instruments. Above this age students will be strong enough to play tenor if they choose. I...
