Re: Help with Buying Son's first Sax
Something I forgot to add to my post.
I would highly recommend a few private lessons to get your son started. They can help him work on the basics; embrochure, fingerings, etc. to prepare him for school band. He'll get the individual attention that he may not get from the school band director. Ask the instructor, or school band director if a lessor-known brand meets their approval.
