Hi Pete. I just wanted to write and say thank you! I played sax for around ten years when I was young until it got stolen and I gave up. I recently got an alto for my 40th birthday so have taken it up again.
Anyway, 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.
I received this book a few days ago and I am delighted with it. Thank you for putting it together.
