At the last count there are about 150 sax tutor books out there, so why bother with this one? Because it teaches a lot about the saxophone and music in a fun, well-paced and modern manner. The book gets you up and playing but is mindful of important things needed to make a good sound on sax. The accompanying CD is brilliant - 15 cool tunes - in a variety of styles (you're playing rock from track one) . . . Another great feature is that improvisation skills are developed, with heaps of help given by the authors . . . It is ideal for a sax teacher as well, because it's all there and both children and adult pupils wanting to learn will get into it . . . Highly recommended. ( Jazzwise online store Summer 05)
If I could give awards for sheer value it would have to go to Creative Saxophone . . . with a 72-page book and play-along CD, the book is a real bargain. ( Gerard McChrystal, Music Teacher, July 04)
