I designed this program to help you begin your musical journey on the alto saxophone in the most efficient and fun way. This program is suitable for anyone who has a desire to play and has a working alto saxophone. There are over 2.5 hours of video lessons and practice videos.

The layout of the course uses a simple format:

There are twelve sets of lessons and practice videos that help you learn melody, rhythm, harmony, and improvising. This program also contains a "Jam Room" with a virtual band that you can play along with at different speeds.
