Brand new in Sax School this week is a set of lessons on the lovely classical melody Ave Maria.

These lessons are part of the “Introduction to Classical Saxophone” course inside Sax School.

Why learn classical saxophone?

Although I have spent my career playing jazz, pop and blues, I started out learning classical saxophone because it is the best place to develop rock solid technique and skills.

As you develop your playing, learning some classical melodies is a great way to round out your technique and focus on details in your finger and embouchure skills that will propel your playing forward.

Not tried a classical melody? Why not have a go at this one!
