general outline for self teaching
Hi, for reasons that would be too long to explain, I want to begin learning the saxophone on my own. I seem to gather that this may not be the best way to start for most beginners but please somene provide a general outline for how to go about learning for maybe about 1year while i save money for lessons. I am now reading basic music theory to at least learn how to read music and understand general theory but as for getting the saxophone out and going through beginning playing, what I would need is an outline of a sax learning plan. I have found numerous youtube clips on many aspects of beginning steps, such as embouchere, beginning ote playing, posture, breathing etc etc but can somone write out a brief outline of topics so at least my self plan has some logic sequence to it? I am only guessing as to how to order my learning in a logical sequence.
for instance (below I will make a stab at what I mean by outline as i do not expect someone to take more than some minutes to list some items
1. Month One: Spend (x) amt of time in practice sessions working on embouchre; spend (x) amt of time playing the notes, spend (x) amount of time on music theory
2. Month Two: spend (x) time on (whatever).
I dont expect anyone to do a weekly guide but something that will guide me for about 12mo.
reason this may help me as I am not finding much on the internet as to a lesson guide so I can then on my own work on topics in some order that seems to work for a player and an instructor but in my case I would have to get by on my own.
Sorry for long post, but I have found the dummies guide to sax and it seems to be one way to go about it and if its too hard or unfair to ask somone on this forum to provide a guideline, I may just buy that book as my guide, its in a local library and may only cost $15.00 or so. In the alternative if anyone has a link to a lesson guide, please post a link.
Thank you for reading this. I have purchased a tenor sax already even though maybe I should have waited to have lesson money, but I could not resist.
