Saxophone Survival Guide
(Interactive Digital E-Book) - The Saxophone Survival Guide is an upgrade to the classic music method book. It harnesses the tools of the day by incorporating interactive custom video content in every section. The method book has gone digital!
Welcome to the Saxophone Survival Guide! Yaaaaayyy! What is the Survival Guide all about? One summer while teaching saxophone at Camp Encore/Coda in Maine, I realized the students there needed a roadmap to focus their saxophone studies for the coming year. The goal for the Guide is to organize the thought processes, techniques, and general topics that beginning saxophonists need to have in order to advance.
As a student, I had great difficulty practicing what my teachers suggested because it was all so abstract. Hopefully, the Saxophone Survival Guide can clear up some of the questions you may have and inspire you to practice. So, here it is! For You!
