Proud New Mama...

Hey everyone! Well, I broke down and I bought a Selmer TS500 tenor after not having touched a sax since high school... let's suffice it to say our 20 yr reunion has come and gone. Someone said playing is like riding a bike but so far I'm not having that experience. In high school I played oboe in the concert band, alto sax in jazz band and tenor sax in marching band and I swear I don't remember playing being hard at all! Any advice to make relearning a bit easier? I do look forward to making new friends here. Blessings, ~wolf

    take a deep breath, relax and be patient..it's a process..try to do some minutes everyday..be kind to yourself..enjoy the little successes that you do have..ain't it great that you can do this at all? You'll get it..

      there are no short-cuts. practise is the answer to everything (well, most things) and anyway, if there were shortcuts, us sax players would have taken them already
