Unlike most instruments, the saxophone is a lot older and more known from the very early stages in musical development. One of the main essentials to learning any instrument is the development in the inner ear, to hear the music perception of sound.
Many people learn how to play an instrument when they are young and the hobbies stays with many of them as they become adults. Starting off at a young age can be a little hard, so a lot of people consider buying a used saxophone. A used saxophone is good to start off with, and over time a new saxophone will come.
The traditional starting instrument for a beginning saxophonist is the alto saxophone. The reason that the alto saxophone is the ideal beginning sax is because most of the classical saxophone literature is written for the alto saxophone.
The alto saxophone requires less air use than the tenor saxophone, and that helps the beginner gain practice of immunity to the air concept. The smaller key scale often fits more comfortably in a young person’s hands as well.
All instruments can be very valuable, and therefore very expensive. The saxophone also comes with a few extra parts with it to complete it and play it. So on top of the accessories, it can be more expensive. Buying a used saxophone cannot only be cheaper but more helpful to get a saxophone that is needed now, and then save up money to buy a new one.
Consult a local music store that sells used saxophones, any music teacher for the best brands, or a private hired music teacher for suggestions on the models, and brands that would be best for first time players to try out. And another great idea, would be to take the beginner to try out a few instruments, to see what fits best. See if your private teacher would mind trying out a few instruments on your behalf.
