Hi! I’m Matthew Smith, the owner of SAXOPHONE Studies, where sax players come to learn how to create incredible sounds.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with the sound the saxophone makes. From the first time I heard Coleman Hawkins 'growl', I just knew I had to enter this amazing world of sound.

I picked up a saxophone for the first time in 1992, started performing professionally in 1994, and have been teaching since 2000.

Since opening the doors to my online classroom, I’ve had the great pleasure of connecting with adults at all stages of their saxophone playing journey. Some already play, others are returning to their practise after a 20, 30, or 40+ year hiatus, while others are following an unexplainable desire to pick up the instrument for the very first time.

My goal is to break learning to play the saxophone down into simple, step-by-step lessons that develop your technique at the same time as building your confidence.

"I love it, I love it, I love it! My saxophone has started oozing the blues!"

- Gary Cooper

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this for?
This is for any saxophone player who would like to play my original solo over a 12 Bar Blues in Concert E. There are the relevant resources for soprano, alto, tenor & baritone saxophones. Even if you're playing isn't yet advanced enough to play the full piece, you can still get value out of learning some of the simpler phrases.

Yes. There is sheet music to accommodate both Bb & Eb - this covers soprano, alto, tenor, baritone saxophones. There's also sheet music with the altissimo notes transposed down the octave.
What if it's too fast for me to play?
I always teach my pupils to start slowly and get the music accurate, then they can speed it up! To help with this process I have included two versions of every backing track: 1 - at speed; 2 - a slowed down version
Can I slow down your original video to help me learn it at a slow speed?
Yes! This is a really cool feature on all videos within SAXOPHONE Studies. It is also possible with any video on YouTube too. You simply click on the settings wheel on the video controls and alter the playback speed - this doesn't affect the pitch, it simply slows it down.
