  • July 02, 2007 ONE CD

    I have only one CD with Book 1. It covers only instructions 1 to 58. I wish I could buy the CD for the instruction items 59 to 187. Harold

  • January 14, 2001 The Best Book to Learn 2 Play The Sax.

    I think this is a good book for Tenor Saxophone beginners. I used it myself and it helped me learn my notes and how to play very well. So if you are a beginner, get this book so it can help you learn to play.
