String Wound

How difficult is it to get to an intermediate playing level on the saxophone?

I'm a music education major in college (freshman, percussion focus), but recently as a result of my new appreciate and love for jazz also took a strong interest in trombone, trumpet, and saxophone (especially saxophone). Next year I will be required to take instrument technique classes (brass, strings, winds), the idea being that you can at least know the basics of most of the instruments, but I personally would like to take at least the saxophone to a high school playing level if possible.

So how difficult is it to learn the basics of saxophone?

What are some of the biggest challenges in the first couple years?

What's a good quality saxophone company to buy a decent saxophone or rent?

The saxophone is an instrument that is somewhat easy to learn, but hard to master. An intermediate level is hard to get to for a very young musician who has not ever played an instrument before, but since you are in college and already have knowledge of music I would imagine that within 6 months to a year you could get on an intermediate level, unless you are exceptional. Here is a good page that can really help you if you are learning how to play saxophone. It is perfect for helping you get to an intermediate level and has some great products on there that you can buy for your saxophone. http://www.squidoo.com/playing-the-alto-saxophone
