A Simple Guide to Progressing Daily on the Saxophone

In the same way that athletes spend a significant portion of their training time on stretching or general physical conditioning musicians must likewise devote time to warming up and musical fundamentals daily.

Step-by-step walk throughs of everything

I don't just tell you "go practice this" and leave you on your own. Each part of this program is demonstrated on alto and tenor sax in a video with fingering guides, on screen sheet music, and more...

Includes BONUS Playlist feature

In addition to giving you the most effective warm-up exercises and explicit instructions on how to get the most out of them, I've also included video playlists, which give you variations of practice routines lasting 10, 20 or 30 minutes.
