Pete Thomas is the author of Taming The Saxophone – website and tutorial book series.

Taming The Saxophone

Learn about the saxophone: how to start out if you are a beginner or how to improve if you are already more advanced. Learn how to speed up your fingering, control your tone and gain versatility. Find out about extending your range into the stratosphere with altissimo or how to amaze your friends, family and neighbours with special effects. You can also learn the nitty gritty about jazz theory, improvisation and composing.

Help other people: You can buy any of our saxophone products and know you are contributing to a good cause. All profit from the Fundraising store is donated to charity – we have raised £50,000 to date and currently we are buying instruments and funding a music programme for children with severe learning disabilities.
