Washington DC Saxophone Lessons for Kids

Most students begin on alto or tenor saxophones. The alto weighs just over 4 lbs and the average tenor weighs about 6. We recommend that your student be at least 7 years old to start alto saxophone and at least 8 years old to begin tenor saxophone. This will ensure that they are old enough to hold up the instrument properly. Keep in mind that they will be using a neck strap - and this will make their time easier!

We highly value learning proper technique while maintaining fun and exciting saxophone lessons! In lessons, our teachers use a wide range of saxophone method books including: Rubank, Accent on Achievement, and Essential Elements. Our teachers commit themselves to the success of their students, and their lesson plans are delicately crafted to meet each students’ needs and desires. Lessons In Your Home is a unique school in that we treat every lesson as a personally crafted experience. And you are no exception!
