Hi Pete. I just wanted to write and say thank you! … your website has really helped me to get back into practising. I’ve ordered your books and have started swotting up on scales etc. I was never very good at learning them but you explain it so well! Thanks very much for making me feel that I can really come back and be better than I ever was at the sax.

Pete Thomas: Taming not one, but two saxophones
Photo: Simon Warren | Concept: Marcelle Ben Haque
Learn about the saxophone: how to start out if you are a beginner or how to improve if you are already more advanced. Learn how to speed up your fingering, control your tone and gain versatility.
Find out about extending your range into the stratosphere with altissimo or how to amaze your friends, family and neighbours with special effects. You can also learn the nitty gritty about jazz, blues and rock improvisation and composing.
Play the saxophone, don’t let the saxophone play you!”

A very lively international forum where saxophone players come to meet and greet, ask questions, give advice, have a laugh. If there is anything you can’t find out about here, then somebody in the Café is bound to know the answer or point you in the right direction.
You can just say a quick “hello” or ask about something that’s been nagging you (no question too stupid!).

Pete devised and presented a saxophone instruction DVD for Virgin Music (over 20,000 copies sold worldwide). You can also buy his hand made mouthpieces, CDs, sheet music and the now infamous Taming the Saxophone books of saxophone techniques.
