Learning to play an instrument for the first time is difficult and I did not think it would be possible even from someone as qualified as Matt. However in just three months I have learned far more than I expected. Matt doesn't just teach me how to play the songs I enjoy; he explains the background of every chord I use. He is thorough, patient and makes every class fun. I really enjoy my lessons and I consider myself lucky that he is my instructor.MILDRED NUNEZ - NEW YORK , NY Teacher: Matt B.
About the Saxophone
Nearly all saxophones, past and present, are made from brass. Despite this, they are usually categorized as woodwind instruments rather than brass.
