Saxophone Lesson Information
Bring your own saxophone or get equipped with our Starter Saxophone, a low commitment first instrument option given the price. It has a surprising mellow sax sound and is a lot of fun to play even for an accomplished amateur sax player.
Renting a J-Sax Starter Saxophone from our school is easy! The J-Sax is made of silicone and plastic parts, it's easy to sanitize and completely washable with warm soapy water. It's very light and smaller sized compared to a regular saxophone. Ideal for young children interested in an early start to playing, if you're not sure of commitment level and want to wait to make a purchase. Before ordering a rental, you'll need to set up a monthly rental subscription with our Front Desk to rent with us.
