Are you brand new to the saxophone and  and not sure where to start? Follow these 3 steps.

1. Buy or rent a saxophone and supplies

If you don't have a saxophone yet, you can buy new or used, or rent an instrument. Our buying guide goes over different options for buying or renting a saxophone, as well as the other supplies you will need to have.

2. If your saxophone is used, get it inspected

If you have a used saxophone (versus new), we recommend getting it inspected by a local music store repair tech to be sure it's working well.

3. Take our free Saxophone Fundamentals online class

Our free Saxophone Fundamentals class will take you from getting the saxophone out of your case to playing your first three notes.
