I Wanna Learn Saxophone

” I’m going to learn saxophone “.

” I want to learn how to play the saxophone “.

” Before I die, I want to learn how to play saxophone “.

” I wanna #$%! around and learn saxophone !”.

It’s amazing how many people want to learn how to play the saxophone !!


I’ve been spending a bit of time on Twitter lately.

Doing a quick search for “learn saxophone” will return hundreds of results of people all announcing to the Twitter-sphere in various permutations and combinations about how they are going to go out into the world and learn saxophone.

As a side note – it is interesting (and rather strange) how many people use an expletive while announcing their learn saxophone goals from Twitter.  I personally don’t associate the saxophone with swear words, but hey, each to their own….

Irrespective of the phrasing, what I have found surprising is how often and how regularly people from all over the world are thinking about learning how to play the saxophone.


This is fantastic !!


I have been engaging in conversations with some of these people, which has also been interesting and lots of fun.


Some people are just flippantly tweeting random thoughts that they really have no intention for or idea about.  A bit like a certain President whose overuse of Twitter is well known.

Other people are actually, genuinely, wanting to play the saxophone.  By writing it down and making it public they are hoping to get one step closer towards what has honestly been a goal of theirs for some time now.

In some cases, these people have wanted to learn how to play the saxophone for decades.  Some played it when they were at school 15/20/25/30/35/40 years ago and want to pick it back up again.

Others have seen cool photos or videos of sexy looking musicians wielding a sax and think that they want to live that dream too.

Yet others just want to learn saxophone for the pure joy of either making music or learning something new, or both.

It would appear that most of these people are male.  Why is that ?

I don’t recall anyone ever saying, “nice girls don’t play saxophone”….!?! 

Maybe it’s just the men who announce their thoughts on Twitter ?  Just as many women actually play saxophone as men….


Anyway, obviously I’m biased, but I think learning how to play the saxophone is a WONDERFUL idea !!


Perhaps you are a baby boomer who wants to learn saxophone ? 

I Wanna Learn Saxophone

You are approaching retirement, you’ve worked hard, you’ve raised a family, you’ve got a bit of disposable income, you are looking for a new hobby to get stuck into, you’re still open to new ideas and want a challenge.  You are both young enough and old enough at the same time to know what you want and are willing to go for it.

And there are some songs that you REALLY want to play.

Perhaps you are a Mid Lifer – you’re in the middle of a busy couple of decades, 25-45 years old, arguably on “the treadmill” with jobs, kids, mortgage/rent, partners/spouses, school runs and sports drop offs (Mums/Dads taxi).  You have personal plus professional plus financial responsibilities.  You may or may not hate your job, but you need to keep going.  And you’re stressed.

You have very little time for yourself.  Now is the time to be just a teeny tiny little bit selfish and do something for yourself that you’ve always wanted to do…..and learning saxophone is near the top of your “want list” ?

Maybe you are a school student (or a parent of a school student) who wants to learn saxophone ?

Perhaps you are in a rural or remote area or perhaps you don’t have any saxophone teachers within a reasonable travelling distance of where you live.  Perhaps your school does not offer saxophone lessons.  Home school students want to learn saxophone as much as regular school students do !  Or perhaps sax lessons with a one-on-one teacher are a bit out of the preferred budget and price range.  Online saxophone lessons are a fantastic way to learn saxophone !

Retirees LOVE to learn saxophone.

You have retired and you now have plenty of time on your hands.  You probably have a little bit of cash set aside for some small and maybe even not-so-small luxuries.

Buy or ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle – check.  Do some national or international travelling – check.  Go skydiving – check.  Learn saxophone – why not ?!?


Social Media is full of people who want to learn how to play the saxophone.

Maybe you are one of them.  Maybe you have wanted to learn saxophone for minutes, for years, or for decades.

Life is too short to have regrets.  Life is too precious to not grab it by both hands and do something that you really want to do.

To the people who say “I wanna learn saxophone”, I say – go for it !!
