How To Learn Saxophone By Yourself

So, you’re stuck at home or you have simply always wanted to know how to learn saxophone by yourself….and now seems to be the right time.

Good decision !

There are a few things that you will need to do in order to learn saxophone by yourself.

First and foremost – you will need a saxophone !  Without one, no amount of learning will help you unless you actually have a sax in your hands and in your mouth.  We have some suggestions for saxophones on our Resources page if you need help with this.


The next thing to realise is that actually you don’t have to learn by yourself !!


Yes, you may be alone in the room.  Yes, you can work it out by yourself without any help, but it will take years.  Many years.  And it will be a battle.

But you don’t have to be alone and it doesn’t need to be a battle.

However, there is so much help available for you to start or continue your saxophone journey under the guidance of someone who knows how to play the saxophone, how to teach the saxophone, how to make your saxophone lessons fun, inspiring and enjoyable.

One possibility is that you can order a saxophone lessons music book online.  This will magically arrive at your door.  The downside with simply learning saxophone from a book is that reading and translating what you read into action can be rather confusing and difficult.


So, how about online saxophone lessons ?


Youtube is free resource that is full of great online saxophone lessons.  It is also full of not-so-great saxophone lessons.  Sorting the good from the bad is a time consuming challenge.

Yes, if you’ve got the time, then sure – go for it.  But knowing what is good and not-so-good is really only possible AFTER you have watched the saxophone lessons video.

There are some great online saxophone lessons out there on the internet.

Some dedicated learning platforms such as Udemy or Skillshare offer some really great and simple courses that will teach you how to play the saxophone.  These courses are organised, their prices are reasonable and you will have several options and outcomes to choose from.  These can be a great place to investigate when researching how to learn saxophone by yourself.


Then there are a very small handful of websites that are dedicated to online saxophone lessons.


Here at that is what we do and what our website does 24 hours a day, every day.

We have blog posts, free saxophone lessons, a Beginners Course and our flagship Saxophone Lessons Membership where our Members from all over the world can log in when ever they like and play their saxophones, learn a new song and have some fun along the way.
