Whether you're moving to the baritone saxophone with a background in alto and tenor, or picking it up as your first horn, it's still fair to describe yourself as a beginner—it's enough of a change from the other saxophone varieties for that. The right method books will help you quickly build the foundation you need to start yourself on the path to mastering this complex and rewarding instrument. If you're working from a clean musical slate, choose a method book that starts with the basics so that you can get all the information you need about core theory and how to read sheet music. That's an important first step for any musician to take, and it'll give you the general knowledge you need in order to put the baritone sax fingering and embouchure techniques to good use.
Certain method books are paired with media to cater to certain types of learning. If you're a visual learner, for example, you'll appreciate a book with comprehensive illustrations and a multimedia CD-ROM or DVD to show you the techniques firsthand. Auditory learners will do well with books that include demo CDs to play along to. These extras are not only great learning tools; they also give you good points of reference to track your progress as your skills develop.
Along with the method books, you'll also find songbooks with simplified arrangements of classic songs that allow you to put techniques into practice as you learn them, motivating yourself with real results along the way to learning the nuances of the baritone saxophone. The better you get, the more advanced arrangements you'll be ready to take on.
Learning a new instrument never happens overnight. It's a commitment that will reward you over time, and you need strong resources to help you grow and work your way to that payoff. Method books are something that no beginner should be without: they'll help you take those critical first steps toward perfecting your new instrument.
