What You Get in this course

Your Improvisation Will Improve Immediately

Saxophonists spend a large part of their mental energy with what notes to play and often times far less time on how to play them. For most everyone, this means that we are quick to play never-ending streams of eighth notes that over time become both exhausting to maintain as the performer, but also boring for our band mates to play and interact with. The content of our message is important but equally, if not more important, is how we deliver that message. The Rhythmic Pyramid aims to give you dozens of ways to consider how to uniquely deliver that message ranging from the simple to the complex and everything in between.

Online Video Course

Adam Larson guides you through his Rhythmic Pyramid masterclass with video lessons. Each step in the process is broken down and demonstrated in detail.

Digital PDF Book

Some publishers make you purchase separate versions for each transposition. BetterSax books always include parts for Eb, Bb and concert key instruments.


Audio Recordings

Listen and practice along to recordings of each supplemental exercise as well as play-along backing tracks.
