This was a gift for a friend, and he said it was a little too hard for beginners...Saxophone for Dummies would have been a better pick.
The book was not very detailed or structured for beginners. This book would have been better had it broke down the saxophone play by play.
I picked up this book, and I am very dissappointed. It doesn't have much organization nor aim for what level it wants to teach. Some of the stuff is very easy; other parts are difficult. But it's not presented in any kind of order, so first-timers will get very intimidated, while experienced players will get next to nothing, provided they have the patience to mine for the information. A detailed table of contents and subject breaks would have helped tremendously.
My only comment is the fact that this book is not for beginners. The title is very misleading. In the preface it is described as a book for a second or third year student.
did not receiv it as off yet. Would like to have my money back
