I started learning tenor sax with a single professional lesson and the loan of Standard of Exellence Book 1. I have now purchased Book 2 which I find even more helpful as it has rekindled my enthusiasm for regular practice, making it an enjoyable part of my daily routine and resulting in much improved playing.
