Start Playing The Saxophone Today!

The saxophone is a great instrument to learn, and you will soon find that it is really fun. When you are successful at learning to play, you will even find a great sense of accomplishment. There are a few different types of sax instruments for you to choose from. While there are a few different types, it does not really matter which one you choose when you are first getting started. You can really learn the basics on either type you may choose. You just need to make sure that you have everything that you need to get started.

What You Need to Get Started

You will want to make sure that you have the saxophone of course, but there are also a few other things that you will need in order to make sure that you play correctly. You will have to get saxophone reeds, a mouthpiece and ligature matter. These are all important if you want to play the instrument the right way. Without the reeds and the mouthpiece, you will not really be able to play.

When you purchase your reed, you will want to get more than one. This is because they do not really last very long at all. You have to have a specific type of reed and you will find that they only last about two weeks if you play often. Make sure that you have some spares on hand in case you need them. The softer the reed, the easier it will be to get started. This means that you will want to start with a very soft reed to begin with and then you can increase the number as you get more experienced.

The next thing that you will want to find is a mouthpiece. You will want to find a quality mouthpiece if you really want to create a great sound. Once you have your reeds and mouthpiece you will need to have the ligature. This is what holds the reed and the mouthpiece together. You will really not have to spend too much on this part though.

Types of Saxophones

When you get more involved in playing the sax, you may want to consider the different types. You may even want to specialize in one particular type. The alto sax is one of the easiest to start with because it is smaller and it is really easy to control the tone. This is the one that most children and teens start with if they are interested in the saxophone. The soprano sax is also small, but the tone is a bit more difficult to keep control of. The baritone is one of the largest saxophones out there, but it is also one of the most common. The tenor saxophone is another choice for beginners, but it is also one that is preferred by most of the people who are famous for playing the saxophone. Consider each ones and weigh the pros and cons of each.
