Saxophone Lessons in Dallas, TX

Invented by Adolphe Sax in 1846, the saxophone has been heard all over the world, from military bands in the 19th century to jazz ensembles throughout the 20th century. While the saxophone is a complicated machine of an instrument, and it presents a number of unique challenges to the new player, it is one of the most beautiful and rewarding instruments to play in the world. A French composer who lived during Sax’s time named Louis Hector Berlioz once wrote that its “principle merit…is the varied beauty of its accent, sometimes serious, sometimes calm, sometimes impassioned, dreamy or melancholic…like the mysterious vibrations of a bell, long after it has been struck…”

The primary challenge of playing a saxophone well is in that there are many variables that can affect the sound that a sax player produces.

This is without taking into account the two skills the player must develop to be an effective sax player: playing the reed with his/her lips and playing the keys with his/her fingers. However, these factors can all be understood and maneuvered with time and patience.
