Saxophone Basics is a landmark method by one of the leading figures in saxophone education. It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to about Grade 2. There are 22 stages, each section includes a wonderful variety of concert pieces from the great composers, traditional tunes and fun, original exercises, finger gyms and warm ups to help establish a sound technique, factfiles and quizzes to teach notation and general musicianship, helpful, clear fingering charts and rhythm boxes and great illustrations. An accompaniment CD for the alto saxophone is available separately (Order ref: FM52160) which contains all the accompaniments to all the pieces as well as providing additional parts for the duets and trios. Alternatively, there is also a Book/CD edition (Order ref: FM52283).
