This article tells you what you need to know to get started – fingering a few notes, making a sound and playing your first tune.

It seems like a lot of people from all walks of life are thinking about learning to play the saxophone, and it’s now easier than ever due to the proliferation of reasonable quality and very inexpensive saxophones from the far east (see our buying advice). However once you have one of these, the easiest part is over, though you may not think so given the multitude of confusing choices and conflicting information you were given while trying to choose what saxophone to buy. Assuming you made a good choice and what you bought was actually a fully working saxophone, rather than one of the many “saxophone shaped objects” out there on Ebay, then your first instinct will probably be to put it in your mouth and blow. This is possibly the first hurdle to get over, but strictly speaking the order of events is to first assemble the saxophone, then put it in your mouth and blow, although some people might argue that before doing that you should get a good teacher, lest you fall into bad habits. Yeah right, as if you’re going to sit there looking at your new baby while you wait two weeks for your first saxophone lesson, so I shall tell you how to put the pieces together in a way that might result in you learning at least how to make a sound. First of all though let’s look at another important aspect of owning a musical instrument:

If you bought your horn from a dealer, he/she was probably making very little profit from the sale due to the competitive nature of the musical instrument business these days,however, there’s a very good chance you were conned into buying, persuaded to also buy a stand, gigbag, swab, strap, mute, padsaver, reedclipper, polish, gigdust, tuner, music stand, leaklight, key clamps, repair kit, case deodorizer, demoisturizer, cufflinks and Kenny G tee shirt. Well some of these are useful, some are not. I won’t go into great detail here as I shall be writing another page on accessories, but the priorities are:

    a Assuming you have your first lesson all booked up, it won’t do any harm to have a few quick blows on you saxophone, but it does help to know how to assemble it before playing. Hopefully the saxophone came with all it’s parts. These are:

    The main body
    The neck (on some sopranos this is already joined on to the body)
    Mouthpiece
    Reed
    Ligature (the gizmo that clamps the reed onto the mouthpiece)

The first thing to be aware of is that some of the keywork (rods, keys etc.) can get bent. Normal light pressure is fine, but if you have to force anything then this is when things could get bent out of whack. During any of the assembly, if you are in doubt, wait until you are with the teacher,

    Grasp the middle of the body firmly with one hand (I suggest your right hand if you are right handed, left if you are left handed)
    Make sure that the screw at the top has been loosened to allow the neck tenon to fit into the top of the body. Note that there are usually two screws at the top. One of them has a square hole next to it which is used to hold a lyre (marching band music stand). You need the other screw
    Holding the neck in your other hand, slide it down into the body. A slight twisting motion might help. If this is very stiff you could try a small blob of oil or cork grease, but if it really does not want to go in, don’t force it – take the saxophone back to the shop or to a good repairer.
    Check that the loop of the (octave) key mechanism on the neck fits over the extending octave pin at the top of the body. These should end up being very close but not quite touching. The middle of the back of the neck should be lined up with the extending pin.
    Rest the saxophone down in its case or on a stand
    Pick up the mouthpiece and loosen the ligature
    Wet a reed in your mouth, being very careful not to chip the very delicate thin end
    Place the reed on the flat table of the mouthpiece with the curved end (the thin delicate bit) so that it lines up exactly with the curved tip of the mouthpiece
    Slide the ligature over the reed, being very careful again not to damage the tip, until it is approximately halfway between the end of the shaved part of the reed and the bottom (straight thick) end
    Tighten the ligature screws so that it is just tight enough to hold the reed so that it cannot slip around
    Push the mouthpiece onto the cork at the end of the saxophone neck, being careful not to catch the tip of the reed on anything. You may use a twisting motion to help get the mouthpiece firmly on the neck. How far you push the mouthpiece on depends on the tuning of the saxophone, so for now don’t worry, just make sure it is covering more than half of the cork and is a firm fit.

The saxophone is now ready to play
Finally attempting to play the saxophone firm case (not a soft gigbag)
    a good solid stand
    a neckstrap
    cork grease
    a swab (or pullthrough) to clean the inside

Forget polish, pad treatment and most of the other stuff for now until you actually know whether you need it and can tell what is a good useful product and what is just snake oil. I almost forgot (in my modesty), to include the saxophone instruction DVD. I just happen to have been fortunate enough to be asked to make a few years ago. Some retailers in the UK include this when you but a new saxophone. You can, of course, buy it from this site.
