For a beginner saxophone player, the alto is the perfect place to start. Not only is it one of the most common types of saxophone, it's also widely considered the easiest to learn and, by extension, the best break-in point to the sax family. Method books are an important part of the learning process, especially for wind instruments, since they respond very directly to the player's technique, which makes a good foundation essential. No matter your musical background, a good method book will get you up and running. For first-time players, you can start from the basics by learning the scale and how to read sheet music. If you're an experienced musician taking on a new instrument, you'll be able to find insights on how to apply the theory you already know to the alto saxophone. Learning books will also fill you in on how to assemble and care for the instrument so you can keep your new horn in good shape.

For the hands-on learner, you'll want to choose a method book that comes with demo track CDs—this lets you play along with pre-recorded music so that you can fine-tune your developing technique to match what you hear. Many of the method books also include instructional DVDs, which are great for visual learners since they'll show you fingerings and other fundamentals in real time.

Some method books are aimed specifically for younger players, with tips and tricks that will help smaller hands learn to manage the size of the alto saxophone and grow into the instrument over time. You'll also find some songbooks with classic tunes arranged specifically for the beginner. Being able to play songs that you know and love will help motivate you to keep developing your skills until you're ready to move on to more advanced arrangements.

The world's best musicians will tell you that there's no end point for learning an instrument. Method books will give you the foundational knowledge and skills you need to get started on that ever-evolving career, and they're always good to come back to when you want to brush up on the basics.
