    Only a few months? excellent! bravo Simon.
    your next step is to put away the music.
    work on memorizing it little by little and you will start to sound more musical.
    you will be able to “sing” it instead of playing the strict, unmusical rythme like it shows on the paper.

    Keep it up!

    Wow! Simon, that is very well done for such a short period. I particularly enjoyed the end of your video. It made me laugh because this is exactly how I feel sometimes when trying to record a decent version. I’ve been playing alto for just over three years and finding practicing regularly an issue. At times it feels like I’m just not making any progress. I think this is because we keep raising the bar, and there is always something to improve on. I sometimes post my recordings for feedback from fellow learners, in the hope they will identify some issue I’ve missed. I definitely wouldn’t post them if I didn’t get any critical response. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your next recording – Jeff

    Well played Simon!

    Got the makings of a good strong player. The only advice that i can pass on at 4 months, that has been passed on to me by various professional players, time and time again over the years – is relax! Think Sunny beaches, and relax all muscles when you play.

    If i was a sax teacher i would be itching to get you into training.

    Agree with Johnny, ” IF YOU CAN SING IT, YOU CAN PLAT IT
