Just started playing saxophone?
Or perhaps you’ve been playing for a couple of years but it doesn’t sound quite like you hoped?
Playing your saxophone a little each day with good technique will improve how you sound. If you really master a piece of a song before you move on, it will stick better.
So learn a few measures to start with. As you develop, it will be easier to learn more music in less time since you’ll have patterns under your fingers and you’ll recognize ideas in the music.
Beginners have found my Saxophone Foundations class immensely helpful. Learn about intonation and playing in tune with the Saxophone Tuning Guide. Go past the basics with Saxophone Wavelengths. Get lost in the chord changes? Feel more comfortable when you solo by learning to Navigate Chord Changes. Or join the Saxophone Tribe to develop disciplined practicing and improve your technique through feedback.
