5.0 out of 5 stars Best Saxophone starter book 26 Aug 2003
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought five starter books when I started to try and teach myself (at the age of 50+) and this one is by far the best. It takes you through very sound progression up to around grade III, and you will be comfortable playing along with the music on the CD available (extra) to go with this. I had only a little music knowledge before starting and this sets out the different notes, timings, keys etc in a progressive way, which I found only made me want to learn more, rather than being daunting. I felt that this was the only book that I bought which was giving me a sound basic education rather than just quickly learning to play a couple of tunes. Very very highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still relevant after twenty years! 10 Jan 2002
By A Customer
I had an alto saxophone as my Christmas present and this book is just great! It may have been around for twenty years but it is still relevant to today's pupils.
This tutor book is broken down into units. Each unit introduces an idea and then there are exercises and some music to try out the new note, fingering, rhythm or whatever.
I have been able to move fairly quickly through the units without any other help - I haven't arranged any lessons with a music teacher yet. I'll just see how far I can get with Peter Wastall.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if not a first-timer 16 May 2010
By Manny
If you just received your first saxophone, be advise that it doesn't have all the information you'll need.
I'm talking about very simple things such as, how to handle it, how to mount it, how to clean it, breathing exercises, posture, etc.
If you know all that then it's quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good product 6 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended by my teacher. It provides a good step-by-step introduction to the instrument and some more demanding combinations of notes and fingering.
