I am starting really late to learn the sax, now a pensioner. This book explains many things missed in other guides and the online video are brilliant. I almost feel that I know Johnny as a friend, he is so warm and understanding of very early beginners, thank you brother..

HASH(0x9fbb23c0) out of 5 stars New or relatively new to the sax? Get this book! 15 Feb. 2013
By From-me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I literally went from getting the sax out of the case to learning the fingering system and my first scale in 2 days. There is enough here to keep me busy learning for quite a few months with the scale exercises but learning the songs are the most fun because of having the play-along tracks for accompaniment.

It's also very helpful to have Johnny playing the exercises and songs so when I do it it gives me a good model to emulate...I didn't see this video option in the other books when I was looking around and so really happy with my selection. Thanks!

HASH(0x9fbb2414) out of 5 stars Best Starts Here! 5 Feb. 2013
By trim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I like this book. It's very detailed and very informative. Even the smallest things from setting up my instrument until playing it, they have provided everything for the readers. I also like that it has illustrations included to make learning how to play the saxophone easier.

HASH(0xa0442b28) out of 5 stars Exactly What I Was Looking For! 19 Feb. 2013
By Alex Ellis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Having just got a sax I didn't want a huge info-overloaded book, just get to the most important lessons. Although I didn't need to be taught how to take the sax out of the case and assemble it, that lesson is there for those who have never even done that... But moving along I learned what I had to know about getting the right mouthpiece and which reeds to use with it.

Not only does the book have charts for all fingerings but video lessons which show in detail how to finger all notes. This is the best part, and that is for most of the important lessons they have a corresponding link to the accompanying online video lesson... very cool! I have learned a lot and am getting even more from Johnny's website and forum.

HASH(0x9fbb269c) out of 5 stars THE BEST Saxophone instructional book I've seen 28 Jun. 2013
By Baboon4215 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is easily THE BEST instructional book on how to play the Saxophone there has been published to date. It answers just about every question, as a beginner, that you could have. Other books touch on a little of this and a little of that, but they don't teach how to REALLY play the Saxophone like Johnny does in this book. The way he wrote it, it's like having him teach you one-on-one, 24/7 whenever you need it. I highly recommend this book for those who are looking to learn how to play the Saxophone.
