    New member here! I have returned to playing the saxophone after a 40 year career “vacation”. I have been at it for a few months now and I am happy to report that the return has been better than expected. I have always wanted to learn to improvise and have faced severe roadblocks after running scales and arpeggios thru the form. I now have the vocabulary building course and have joined the improv studio. I am hopeful that these two accelerate my progress. I appreciate any feed back on ways to proceed or what methods may have worked for others. Looking forward to the journey here.

    Hey Robert – Welcome aboard and thanks for sharing this with us! Welcome back to the saxophone, the community is very glad to have you. I can say that this journey of playing the sax for the past 30 years for me has been quite an interesting one but I am thankful for every minute of it 🙂
    We can’t wait to hear your playing and how your progress is coming along. I think you will be very satisfied with the results you get from practicing these methods. Many of the students I have worked with in the past end up realizing that improvisation is not exactly what you think it is. We aren’t just over here ‘making things up’ but rather learning the key elements of music composition so that we can create musical stories using that information.
    By all means reach out if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing how your journey is unfolding! 🎷🚀
