As an adult, have you ever wanted to play the saxophone but can't seem to do so? There may be reasons why you shouldn't start taking adult saxophone lessons on this, but there are more reasons why you should. Don't stop yourself if you really want to play the sax, because there's nothing wrong with that. Once you have this mindset, it's time to find yourself a great saxophone lesson where you will learn all the wonderful things about the sax. When looking for an instructor, you should make sure that you would be able to connect with him at a professional level. You may or may not find him to be a suitable companion, but it's really important that you respect and listen to his ideas. The same goes for him. That way, you will both have a comfortable time with each other and have a wonderful working relationship which could last for months or even years. There are many ways in finding adult saxophone teachers. A good method is by going to the local high school or college. There would be music teachers who might be willing to take on a part-time job with you. What's good about this is that you're certain the teacher is experienced in dealing with different kinds of students. But if you want a less expensive instructor, maybe you can ask a student playing the sax well to teach you. That way, you will pay far less than when you get a professional teacher. You can also ask a friend to teach you this instrument so you don't have to pay him at all. However, you should make sure that you can go from the basic to advanced levels with your chosen teacher. And then there is of course, the web. Listings on professional instructors around the globe can be found on the Internet. They could be as far as Singapore, US, or even Europe. Just search for the ones in your area and try to screen them to get the best one. For your own sake, don't be too naïve in thinking that just because they said this and that does it mean it's true. It's very easy to lie, especially when you can't see the other person. Before starting adult saxophone lessons, you should have seen him in action so you'll know his style of teaching. Your playing style may not be compatible with his teaching. This is why having a trial beginner saxophone lesson with him or at least see him work with another student is important. Many people, especially on the Internet, say that online guides and videos are enough to learn everything about saxophone. This really depends on the person learning, but usually, it is never enough. You can't learn from your mistakes, simply because you don't know whether you're doing something right. No one teaches you the techniques first-hand so you know how to play better and easily. These are something impossible to overcome without the proper guidance of a professional teacher.
