Andy Hampton Saxophone Basics Individual Group Learn Beginner Tutor Book S127
Saxophone Basics Pupil's Book is a landmark method by Andy Hampton, one of the leading figures in saxophone education.
It starts at absolute beginner level and progresses to about Grade 2. There are 22 stages, each section includes a wonderful variety of concert pieces from the great composers, traditional tunes and fun, original exercises, 'finger gyms' and 'warm ups' to help establish a sound technique, 'factfiles' and 'quizzes' to teach notation and general musicianship, helpful, clear 'fingering charts' and 'rhythm boxes' and great illustrations.
Also available is a book/CD edition for alto saxophone as well as a separate accompaniment CD. There are separate Teacher's Books for Alto Saxophone and Tenor Saxophone, which offer tips on how to approach new techniques and motivate young players. These would be particularly helpful for teachers who are not saxophone specialists.
