Playing Saxophone Is Good For You

“Music Soothes the Soul” as someone from a long time ago once famously said.  They were obviously talking about playing saxophone.

Or was it “Saxophone Soothes the Savage Beast” ?

Probably both.

Either way, I reckon they were right.  Especially when it comes to playing saxophone.

There were some savage beasts playing saxophone in my neighbourhood a while ago, but they seem to have calmed down and we don’t see them too often any more.  And when we do see them, they now just wave and say “Hi !”.

Playing saxophone – and playing music, any kind of music – is incredibly relaxing, not to mention good fun – for millions of people around the world.

I personally enjoy playing saxophone music of all kinds – fast, slow, loud, soft, acoustic, electric, classical, jazz, world music, calming music, relaxation music, rock, funk, dance, chill out music, blues, heavy metal, or anything in between.  I enjoy listening to all musical genres too.

Actively participating in some form of music, such as allocating the time to sit on the couch and listen to your favourite album on your MP3 player or – gasp ! – the stereo system in your lounge room, or by picking up the musical instrument of your choice ( saxophone !! ) and making some sound, is good for you.

Playing Saxophone is good for you


Playing saxophone makes you stop.  It makes you relax.


It turns on (and can even tune out) your brain.  It can make you think about “something else”.

It can remove stress and increase happiness.  A calm human is a happy human and this often leads to being a healthy human.

You can listen to or play music by yourself, or with some friends, or with complete strangers.

Playing music crosses language barriers and allows you to communicate if you wish, or withdraw into your own world if you prefer.

Playing saxophone allows you to channel your creativity purely into “the moment”.

Do you prefer to listen, or play your saxophone, or perhaps even both ?  Where do you prefer to play your sax ?  What style of music do you prefer to play or listen to ?  Please let me know in the comments below 🙂
