How long will it take me to play all sax scales?
(Currently can play “nil” major scales)
A few other people have said they know zero of the major scales.
How long it will take you to learn the scales on saxophone depends on many things.
They include whether you have played instruments before, how much you practice, whether you have a teacher, etc.
But probably the best way is to learn one scale and then see how it goes and how long it takes.
I would say half the scales will take approximately as long as it takes to learn the first scale. The other half will probably take half that time.
There are similarities between scales.
For example, the difference between C major and G major is one note, the F#.
If it took you a very long time to learn your first scale, it may take quite a bit less time to learn another scale.
Once you have learned a few scales, it’s probably going to be more accurate that the next one will take about as long as the previous one.
