Thought long and hard about purchasing this book,now I have listened to the pros sax players comments, what a gem of a book.seeing how they all warm up and WHY they use various techniques to kick start their playing. their comments are also good to hear.
I am now using various warm up techniques from this book with specific pupils..New ideas and fresh thoughts are always good to spring on budding minds and musicians..
Highly recommended addition to my library.. Anonymous
