What Our Members Say...

"The Studio (and BetterSax courses in general) have been THE biggest part of my sax journey for the last three years, and having the opportunity to play a few small gigs in public is a dream I'd set out to accomplish. So much of my participation in the Studio has given me the confidence and foundations to get out and do this!"

“I have just played the first backing track and rattled off my first attempt at improvisation using what I’ve gleaned so far. Well, even to me, it sounded not bad. The hair on the back of my neck stood up just thinking of the implications of what I have here. Now, I’m a lot further along the road than I was, thanks to you.”

“This is the best instruction on learning pentatonic scales and beginning improvisation I have come across so far! Your method is also good for improving finger agility on an instrument, too. Thanks for sharing! You’re a great teacher!”

"I joined BetterSax early in the pandemic and that changed my sax life. Basically, I began to enjoy playing and looked forward to practicing every day."

Have Questions?

Yes! When you sign up for the BetterSax Studio you will get access to all content from previous Studio units.

It’s easy to share recordings or video to be reviewed by instructors. We recommend using YouTube for video and Soundcloud for audio. Both are free. Once you have uploaded your recorded content to one of those sites you simply copy and paste the URL link inside the BetterSax Studio to start getting feedback.

Recording Submissions are NOT a requirement. One of the best parts about the BetterSax Studio is that members not only learn from the instructors, but also from each other. Student recordings that get submitted to the Studio will be visible by all members and so will the teacher’s feedback. While this is an ideal situation for learning, we understand that not everyone is ready to record themselves and have those recordings analyzed by others. 

Anyone who is an intermediate level player is welcome to join. It is recommended that BetterSax Studio members have a basic level of music theory (know a few scales and chords) to be comfortable with the lessons. Going through  the Harmonic Foundation Course will provide the necessary background but is not required. 

No, the BetterSax courses are separate purchases and are not included with the Studio membership.

As soon as your purchase is completed you will receive a confirmation email. Please check junk and spam folders for this if you don’t see it right away. Add to your list of safe senders, to ensure delivery of all important emails.

Follow the instructions in this email to login to the BetterSax Members Area where you will have access to the BetterSax Studio Course.

Yes, absolutely. Cancelling your Studio subscription is easy. You will receive a link on your purchase invoice to your customer hub where you can manage your subscription and billing info at any time. You can also send us a message anytime you want to make a change. You’ll still have access for the remainder of the last month your subscription was active.

As long as your subscription remains active your monthly cost is locked in at the amount you signed up for originally.

No, the BetterSax Studio is for all saxophones. PDF materials are transposed for Eb and Bb instruments.

We recommend that you go through some of the BetterSax courses before joining the Studio. If you already have a background in basic music theory and can play scales and arpeggios on your saxophone you should be up for the challenge though.
