    It was great learning about Saxophone in ‘Introduction to Saxophone’ module. This Intro course created tremendous curiosity about the instrument and it has developed desire to learn more.

    I started my learning as a beginner, right from holding a Saxophone instrument, blow air & then sound ~~~ And much more.

    I’m now focusing on SAX1 course module to sharpen my skillsets.

    The tutors are very helpful, excellent mentor and coach.

    Special thanks to Trevor and Martino for being there in my saxophone learning Journey.

    Regards
    Vilas Thawale
