Learn to Play Sax


Note: this course is for you if you start to play the saxophone ór if you already play the saxophone but want to add nice and simple songs to your repertoire and learn them by heart; improving your hearing. It can well be that also the explanation of the technique may be very useful for you even if you play for some years.
Note: the videos are recorded with alto saxophone. With tenor and soprano you can’t play with me and play by ear (hopefully in the future I’ll make another recording). But; tracks and sheet music for tenor/soprano are provided. The baritone saxophone is just like the alto sax in E flat so you can play along with the videos.

This complete beginners course is developed by Floor Wittink: a professional saxophonist with over 20 years of experience both in performance and teaching. Floor has developed a clear vision about teaching. She has written a book and founded a Saxophone school based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Floor made a course where her vision and experience with teaching hundreds of adults and children are brought together.

Floor states that everyone should experience the joy of music making. Develop musical skills, confidence, knowing how to study, through playful exercise and the development of good technique and sound are all part of what makes you a complete musician.
This course emphasizes on learning how to play the sax and developing your musicality, including playing by heart and improvising, and less on reading notes. There are many programs that can help you with this skill. It simply takes time and practice. But in this course sheet music of every song is provided and you’ll learn all the note names together with the saxophone fingerings, the use of sharps and flats, time signatures and counting along. You’ll improve your rhythm skills and learn to memorize a melody. In addition, you’ll be able to play several scales and play famous songs in different keys, all of which is a great foundation, furthering the development of your reading skills.

Knowing how to study and become your own teacher is often underestimated, but the increased confidence will help you to keep developing your skills. Most importantly, you’ll be inspired to continue playing and enjoying this wonderful instrument!

I like the thorough yet clear explanations

Very interesting and very useful course for the starting saxophonist. Even useful for intermediate sax players

Both the way of presentation and the content of this course “Learn to play sax” will be very stimulating if you are starting to play this instrument. In particular the fact that in a short while you are introduced to playing along and improvising. In addition the course conveys know-how that is also noteworthy to the already advanced player, e.g. in the areas of handling of the instrument, body posture and hand position, and breathing technique. This also holds for various exercises that are included. A well thought out and designed course.
