It is always great to receive updates on how people are finding the book.
I downloaded about 5 sample ‘getting started’ books from iTunes but Get Jamming Alto Saxophone for Beginners is by far the best. I haven’t had a great deal of time to practice since Christmas but the book has been an inspiration - even in such a short time I can play most of the low notes; middle C down to low C and today I’m working on the higher notes - C sharp and upwards.
I love the way the books is structured, providing great scaffolding for beginners - the interactive ‘play along’ songs are just right and the pace of the book is perfect for a newbie like me. I would highly recommend beginners not to waste money on other books - Get Jamming Alto Saxophone for Beginners is the first choice!
....another reason why I really like your book, [is] the colour coding on the keys [which] makes it easier to see where to place individual fingers. I find ‘finger diagrams’ difficult and complicated so highlighting the ‘real’ keys helps to differentiate each of the keys from others.
