Re: I want to try a new beginner method for sax--help me find one
I'd love to see something along the lines of "for clarinets only" for saxophone. I love the Rubank books, but they aren't "shiny" enough for 6th graders to get excited about. I use a mix of EE, Rubank, and First Book of Practical Studies.
A friend is using the new Musical Mastery series. It looks really good. Each "book" (it's a collection of PDFs that you can print) is specific to the instrument.
I've used Essential Elements and Rhythm Master. I've got a homogeneous class coming up this year and I'd like to try a saxophone specific method.
Do you have any recommendations?
Btw, I've done the "method book plus supplement" route and can always do another year of EE plus supplements. I was just wondering if anyone has found a really great sax beginner book.
