Have Questions?

I just started playing saxophone, can I take this course?

I teach this method to beginners as well as experienced saxophone players that have been playing for years. The beauty of the system is that works for you at every level beginner to advanced. The techniques I teach here are all accessible to beginners, and are the same techniques that I incorporate in my own practice every day.

Can I view the lesson content on my tablet or mobile device?

Yes! The videos can be viewed on any device as long as you are connected to the internet. They are streamed from a private server in High Definition and can be watched an unlimited number of times. The PDF downloads and MP3 tracks can be downloaded for offline use.

Can I get the videos in DVD format?

Yes! For an extra $10 I will send you 2 DVDs (one for the Eb version and one for the Bb version) just about anywhere in the world. These DVDs will work in any DVD player from any region. While you wait for the DVDs to arrive you can get started on the course with the online version as well.

Does My Access Ever Expire?

No. Once you are enrolled, you have lifetime access. There will be no recurring fees or renewal fees. Pay once, that’s it.

If you don’t find that the Pentatonic Foundation Course has helped you to become a better sax player, learn melodies by ear, and start improvising your own solos, just send me a message and I’ll refund your entire purchase price no questions asked.

Are there separate versions for Alto and Tenor saxophone?

Yes, and with your purchase you will get access to both. This comes in handy if you play different saxophones or if you decide to switch at some point. Everything is demonstrated on alto sax for the Eb version and tenor sax for the Bb version.

I Play a Different Instrument Can I Take This Course?

Yes. If you play trumpet, clarinet or another Bb transposing instrument the course will work very well for you. If you play another instrument like guitar or piano, you will have to transpose the notes in order to play over the backing tracks. Since you will be learning by ear anyway, that’s just an extra challenge that will help you in the end.
