Get Jammin Tenor Sax ★★★★★

by NJames14 - Aug 25, 2015

I'm a beginning saxophone enthusiast and until I came across Get Jammin it was a struggle getting used to reading music. This book simplified the process by providing music notes containing alphabet labels, and also provided play-along and backup tracks. The lesson pieces are simple but far more interesting than Twinkle Twinkle. Get Jammin is a must have for beginners. I rarely write reviews but I was compelled by this title. It really has helped me with reading, timing, and rhythm. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun and information aid that will get you jammin in no time. I'm excited to hear how I will sound by the time I complete all the lessons. Many thanks Mr.Bonaccorso.

"....I have downloaded your book and I am really liking it at the moment. Saves me from having to keep looking for DVD's that seem to have randomly disappeared. My daughter whom I have recently 'gently encouraged' to pick up the saxophone loves it too!"

"...I also like the improvisation pieces ..... I have even used it busking"


"I'm enjoying the fact that I can take it anywhere and practice with my headphones"

From a happy student:
I have not finished the book but I am thoroughly enjoying each lesson. I'm a beginner and this book is a tremendous help with timing, notes, and everything else. I have several music books and this one is my favorite. I often find myself playing the right notes but the wrong rhythm. The play along is an enormous help.

I like that the letters are written on the notes despite others saying it is not recommended. The explanations are very helpful. I wonder how I'll sound by the time that I reach the end of the book.

I don't often write in but this is an exception.

From Craig M. (4th Jan, 2016):
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.
