This is the 6th lesson in a series on learning how to play the tenor saxophone from the very beginning. This series of lessons will be focused on learning the fundamentals of playing the saxophone and developing good habits. This series will be primarily out of the Essential Elements 2000 Book 1 for tenor saxophone so you will need that book to work out of. These are great lessons for the beginner who wants to learn the correct way to play the sax and get the most out of it.
In this lesson we are dealing with breathing,feeling and counting eighth notes. I also remind you of the proper way to tongue to make sure you are doing it correctly. I take you through page 11-13 in the Essential Elements book. (34 Minute Video Lesson)
