Playing the saxophone can be extremely fun and rewarding. Everybody loves music (and musicians). However, the learning process can be confusing and frustrating for many. Most students don't really know what they should be practicing in order to reach their musical goals. When asked what they are working on, typical responses include:
"well, I play a scale or 2 and then play through some sheet music for band practice, what else is there?"
"I know I should be practicing more, but I don't know what I should be playing..."
"I would love to learn to improvise, but don't know where to start"
Or the all too common:
"Practicing is boring, I don't practice"
