In contemporary times, many music lovers have missed the opportunity to learn music or failed to choose to learn an instrument for various reasons. Especially for many adult music lovers, this is a very high probability of occurrence. But when our personal career and life are relatively stable, have you ever considered learning an instrument to enrich your leisure time and improve your artistic accomplishment?


   If we feel with our heart, the saxophone musical instrument has a high appearance rate in our daily life. Some coffee shops, high-end shopping malls and clubs often play relevant music. If you are good at observation, do you remember that Santa Claus often plays with a saxophone? And now more and more adults are learning saxophone, because we all think it is an instrument that can express our inner feelings, and we can often see the actors and actresses playing it in TV dramas.








The advantages of adults learning saxophone:


   Compared with some children, adults do have more advantages when learning saxophone. Because we often have more sufficient breath and strength, and can also more accurately mobilize our body and mind. At the same time, saxophone doesn't need to recognize many complex chords like piano or violin. On the contrary, to play this instrument, you need to look at the melody of a voice part. Therefore, from the basic conditions, adults are really more suitable to learn saxophone.


   What’s more, saxophone is an instrument that is easy to be played. As long as you use the correct mouth shape and breath, you can quickly play moving music. Judging from the feedback of instrument learning, choosing to learn saxophone can give people a high sense of satisfaction, and because the timbre of this instrument is very close to the human voice, it is easy to express your inner feelings and add some fun to your life when playing music.







What should adults pay attention to when learning saxophone?


   Although there are many advantages for adults to learn saxophone, there are also many aspects that need your attention. First of all, the misunderstanding of many people about playing saxophone is that this instrument must use a lot of strength. This leads to adults using double strength to play, but when you use the correct method and strength to play, you will find that too much strength will affect the performance.


   Many adult students will cracking or feel suffocated when playing. In fact, this is because you use too much strength. In addition, many students will feel nervous unconsciously when playing, and sometimes their mouth will also tightly bite the saxophone and blow their mouth, so the reed will appear some unpleasant music when it is excessively squeezed.


How long does it take to play a good piece of music?


   There are many adult students who often think well before learning saxophone: I want to play some pop music! I want to play some better music! But learning any musical instrument must start from the basics, rather than eager to learn all at once.


   Many other students may say, "Before learning, I found out on the Internet that this instrument is relatively easy to master. I can play the music in about two weeks. Why should I practice basic skills?". There are some exaggerated recruiting on the internet: you can play music in two weeks/learn to play in one week. Not only saxophone, but also the piano have a one-week crash course. But these are some gimmicks. Some cunning businessmen often confuse people by making false statements because of their ignorance of the instrument. Note that there is a big difference between the meaning of the two words "playing well" and "able to play". In fact, learning everything needs to start from the most basic content. If you learn all the basic knowledge, can you learn and play more music by yourself?



   Generally speaking, the learning and training of basic skills should last for at least 2 to 3 months if you want to learn the musical instrument saxophone. The specific needs to depend on the students' learning progress. Of course, you can learn some small etudes and music intermittently during the period of learning basic skills. When you learn basic skills well, you can quickly perform and learn independently, and you can play the music as you like. If you have a desire for the performance effect and timbre, you can continue to learn in stages to improve your performance level.
