I've long admired the music of Kenny G, and finally decided to buy a soprano saxophone and learn to play. I've never played a musical instrument, other than a recorder at school, but decided to give it a try!

I bought a Yamaha YSS-475, and changed to the 6CM custom mouthpiece as I didn't seem to get on too well with the standard item.

I only started trying to play this instrument in the middle of March 2000, and have found it rather difficult. I'm obviously still very much a beginner, and am still learning to sight-read music as well as working on my fingering and intonation.

After three months of playing the Yamaha soprano sax, I had the opportunity of buying a S/H Yanagisawa S880 soprano in as-new condition at a very good price. I took this opportunity because the S880 is a better sax, and has both straight and curved necks. I've found that the curved neck causes less stress on my wrists when playing.

I then decided to trade-in the Yamaha soprano against a Yamaha YAS-62 Alto sax to give me a wider range.


I wanted a way to record midi backing tracks and so I bought a Casio keyboard for the purpose. I don't play keyboard either, so that is something else I have to learn!
