saxophone-lessonsHi, I’m Johnny Ferreira, a professional saxophonist who’s been performing and recording for over 25 years now.

But this How To Play Saxophone site was not intended to be about me, but about you and what you can learn here to either start learning how to play the saxophone or, if you’ve been playing a little already, how you can make noticeable advancements on your tone, technique, and improvisation skills.
