Everybody Needs Somebody - How To Play The Saxophone

Let me help you learn how to play the saxophone.

So – what do you get ?  What’s in the box ?


When you become a Member here at , you get immediate access to an ever increasing series and library of online saxophone lessons.  You can log in to the Members Area at any time that you like and complete as many of the video saxophone lessons that you want.  All you need is an internet connection and a saxophone.


We start at the very beginning, with putting your saxophone together for the first time, and playing your first notes.  We move on to some simple and basic songs, like Hot Cross Buns and Mary Had A Little Lamb – this is to get your fingers, your mouth and your ears all working together.  We learn a few more notes and a few quick scales – again, to make sure that you are going to succeed with the main goal – playing AWESOME songs.


We very quickly move on to some real songs, some cool songs, rock, soul, funk and blues songs.  We are all about quick wins here, to get you playing as quickly as possible, and helping you become the saxophone legend that you know you can be !


There is also a handy section of video saxophone lessons showing you how to play every single note on the saxophone.  Use this as a reference to go back to if you find yourself unsure of how to play a particular note in a particular octave.


Inside the Members Area, as well as the video saxophone lessons, there are PDF Cheat Sheets that you can download, have on screen or print out and keep.  These will help you with the notes for the particular song that you are learning, from that specific lesson.  We are not into complicated musical theory with little black circles on horizontal lines……We make reading the notes easy, by using our ears and the Cheat Sheets !


You also get instant access to the Members Only forums.  Here you can ask questions and get answers.  Not sure about something you’ve seen or heard and how that translates for you and your saxophone ?  Ask in the forums !  I am in the forums almost every day.  I may not be able to answer your question within 5 seconds, but I will answer your question 🙂

Learn by Doing

Watch and Learn and Play along with the saxophone lessons in the Members Area.

It is a well known fact that having a guide and a mentor will accelerate your learning and bring your goals closer – and achieve them in record time.  By watching the saxophone lessons inside the Members Area, you too will be rock’n and roll’n in no time.  By slowing things down, we will speed up your saxophone journey.

Play the music YOU want to play !

Life is too short to play boring songs.

I want to encourage you to play the kind of music that you want to play.  Yes, we will need to get your fingers working properly on your saxophone – and the best way to do that is for me to teach you some scales. Sorry !  However, we will expand on this and jump in quickly to playing real music, real songs, useful songs, fun songs, awesome songs.  Rock, Soul, Blues, Funk, Disco – 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s classics.

So NO to tedium !

Achieve your musical goals

Or help your son / daughter achieve theirs.

Maybe you want to pick up the saxophone again after not playing it since you were at High School.  Maybe you just want to learn how to be able to play a particular song or three.  Maybe you’ve tried once or twice with a dull and boring teacher and lost the will to live.  Perhaps you want to impress your husband or wife, or friends, or your children or grandchildren.  Perhaps you now have the time to learn how to play the saxophone for yourself ?  Maybe you ARE going to be a rock star when you grow up, but you weren’t allowed to at the time….go on… you know you want to….

“My goal is to help you play the music that YOU want to play”


Do you have any questions ?

Please feel free to ask !

Who is this Saxophone Lessons Membership for ?

Baby Boomers, Generation Jones, Generation X – perhaps you are retired, or winding down, the kids have finished school, you’ve got the time and the desire to learn saxophone.

Generation Y and Z – you’ve left university, you’re in the thick of life with jobs, families, responsibilities and commitments. But you want to do something for yourself, like learn saxophone….

Parents of late primary or high school students – maybe you don’t live close to a saxophone teacher, maybe your kids school (or home school) does not have a good music program, but they want to play sax.

Who is this NOT for ?

People who want to play classical music.  Sorry – there are much better classical music teachers out there than me !  But if you want to play rock or soul or classic hits from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s then you’ve come to the right place.

People who want to learn about music theory above actually playing saxophone.  Here we get on with actually PLAYING SAXOPHONE rather than learning about majors, minors, key signatures and little black dots.

People who want to play and learn about complicated jazz chord progressions.  Don’t get me wrong, jazz is fantastic, but we are here to make things easy for you, not difficult.  We are here to help you learn rock, soul and classic hits – and to help you have fun along the way.

Do I need a saxophone ?

YES – you will need access to a saxophone.  Alto Sax or Tenor Sax ?  Soprano sax or Baritone Sax ?

At this stage, ALMOST ALL of the lessons inside the Members Area are for ALTO Saxophone.

Tenor saxophone lessons coming soon.

Perhaps you could rent a sax for a couple of months, perhaps you could borrow or even buy one – but you will need one to play along with the saxophone lessons in the Members Area.

Saxophone Lessons When and Where ?

When-ever and where-ever you like !

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year access.  All you need is an internet connection and your saxophone.

No scheduling issues, no travel time, learn how to play the saxophone when and where it suits YOU 🙂

Am I too old for this ?

NO !  You are never too old to learn the saxophone.  The online saxophone lessons in the Members Area are designed for beginner and future saxophonists of all ages.  The song choices and teaching style is designed around beginner musicians ranging in age from 10 to 110.

If you can click a mouse, you can learn saxophone !

Am I too young for this ?

If you or your child are under the age of 10, then yes.   Other than that – NO you are not too young !  The video saxophone lessons are G rated and family friendly.  The songs are deliberately chosen to not have rude words or too much innuendo.

If you or your child are above the age of 10 years old, you will be able to pick up and handle an Alto Saxophone.  10-12 year old students may need some guidance and would benefit with some parental input during these lessons…but only a little !

Do I need to read music ?

NO !!  All of our lessons are designed to help you PLAY BY EAR.  With simple Cheat Sheets to help you, you will be playing your favourite songs in no time.

What is the time commitment ?

Like most things in life, you get out what you put in.  Inside the Members Area, there are plenty of beginner saxophone lessons to get you started – and plenty more on the way.  It is recommended that you play your saxophone if not every day, then certainly every other day.  5, 10, 15 minutes practice every day certainly beats 30, 60 90 minutes practice once a week.  The lessons themselves range in time from 5 to 35 minutes each.  Most private music teachers suggest one lesson per week.  Here, you could easily do 2 or 3 or more if you are inspired – it’s totally up to you !  Don’t forget to practice your saxophone !!!

What is the financial commitment ?

There are three choices to make your decision easier.  Either a Once Off fee to access the first 23 lessons within the members area and all of the forums, OR a full access all areas Monthly fee, OR a full access all areas Yearly fee.

The Once Off fee choice is exactly that – a one time only charge to access the first 23 lessons.  The Monthly or Yearly choices are automatically renewed Monthly or Yearly, with on going access to all EXISTING and NEW FUTURE content.  No commitment, cancel any time with just 3 mouse clicks.  Please note that there are no refunds, due to the instant availability of all of the lessons, backing tracks and Cheat Sheets.

Is there a trial period ?

YES.  The first two weeks for the Monthly (and Yearly) options is only $1 and gives you full access to everything.  If you like it, you don’t have to do anything and you will automatically be billed for the next and subsequent months until you cancel.  Alternatively, you can change your membership yourself to the Yearly option, or choose the Beginners Course, or cancel if you would like (but we’d hate to see you go)….it’s up to you !

Can I cancel at any time ?

YES.  You can cancel at ANY time with just three mouse clicks.  We would hate to see you go, but there are no lock in contracts here.  Stay for as long as you want 🙂

Thank you Matthew !  I am so excited to learn how to play the sax.  This is on my bucket list.  I am somewhat nervous, but I also am excited.  I have always wanted to learn the saxophone.  However, when I grew up, we didn’t have the money.  I am 70 years old, the old saying “never to old to learn” !!  I am in awe at how quickly you respond to my questions!!  Thank you so much!
Sandra, Retired, 70, USA.
