Re: New to SAX
I would defnitly go for a digital tuner & metranome in one, they are so awesome & are small and easy to use & travel with. The metranome functions on some of them have many options such as different time signatures, note values that will help and teach you a better sense & understanding of rythmn. I would also suggest that since you are learning the sax you will need to learn basic music theory, such as recognizing notes on the treble clef staff, differing note values, bars, beats,rests, time signatures, key signatures & basic scales. The more you know & learn about the language of music the more music you will be able to play. It does not happen overnight either, give yourself time, be persistent, be patient with yourself & be kind to yourself. Music is something that you can do for the rest of your life. It is so rewarding & it gives as much as you recieve from it. It is a direct channel to god, and if you like an infinite source of inner rewards.
