Who’s in charge, you or 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.
What you can buy:
Pete devised and presented a saxophone instruction DVD for Virgin Music (over 20,000 copies sold worldwide). You can also buy his hand made mouthpieces, CDs, sheet music and the now infamous Taming the Saxophone books of saxophone techniques.
It’s not only you who benefits! You can buy any of our saxophone products and know you are contributing to a good cause. All profit from our Fundraising store is donated to charity – we have raised £70,000 to date and currently we are buying music and dance equipment for children with severe learning disabilities.
