I am a professional Saxophonist and full time Musician. I have played in many different work settings, both playing Saxophone and working the Music Business over the past 25+ years. Many of the ideas and concepts presented here are going to come from my experience and view points initially, but many others have joined our team of writers.

Saxophone Resources - Sax Helps

Many sites exist online with Traditional Jazz Sax or Classical Saxophone emphasis. The Purpose of Saxophone.US is to assist younger musicians with the commercial music business education learned after you get out of school, on the road of hard knocks. Little is taught in higher education to assist a Sax Player in playing, or even understanding modern music or the current business climate. Our goal is to give you information that is going to save you many lost gigs, sessions and contacts, and to give you some great ideas on how to find new job opportunities. ...Resources and real Help.

Saxophone Players

This site will include ideas from many other Saxophone Players to round out the content. I own and maintain other web sites and we don't need another site all about ME and MY thoughts. That site already exists; so, what about "US"? Since we are all "a work in progress", lets share our collective experience and watch Saxophone US be a site, for and from the Saxophone Players in the U.S. to the Worldwide Web.



Video is an ever growing media for the sax playersaxophone players abroad - Brazil, Mexico, India, China... I see visitors in the logs this month alone from 108 different countries around the world. I need to check how many there are these days, but I do know that is an amazing reach thru an ever shrinking world thanks to the internet!!!

How about a few of my personal Video Clips to check out?
