Get started with blues and improvising on saxophone with this complete structured course showing you everything you need to know.
"I want to start playing the blues on sax but I just don't know where to start"
Don't worry, you are not alone.
Just about everyone struggles with confidence and knowing which notes to choose when starting out with the blues and improvising.
Even I did.
Then I learned a few important techniques that opened up improvising to me.
These techniques gave me a framework I could use when improvising.
Having a set of rules made me so much more confident with it came to playing the blues, and every other style of improvising.
Suddenly it became easy.
Now 25 years later I'm fortunate to have performed all over the world from hit TV shows to the most famous London theatre stages.
...So you too can have the skills that makes playing the blues and getting started with improvising dead easy.
Because it's the best place to start learning improvising. PERIOD.
Starting out by getting a solid grounding in the Blues means you will not only have a bunch of fun, but you will also be developing skills you can apply to any other style of playing from jazz to pop.
So, I've built a step by step course that will show you in easy steps how you can become a confident blues player.
This course is a series of 50 video lessons divided into 4 modules that take you right through from the absolute basics to blowing over the blues in a number of different styles.
Inside you will learn:
If you are a beginner to intermediate saxophone player and want to learn how you can get started playing the blues and improvising - then heck yes!
Even experienced and professional players who struggle with improvising will find Blues Mastery a powerful tool.
Blues Mastery for Saxophone covers the foundation skills you need to begin your journey of understanding the blues and improvising. The lessons are for Alto and Tenor sax with separate music for each where necessary.
The course begins by building your confidence and developing your ear before moving on to more advanced concepts and styles.
Although I've been working as a professional musician for more than 25 years all over the world, I actually started out in a small town in the far north of Australia.
I dreamed of having a course like Blues Mastery back then when all I had were a few of my parents records to learn from (yes, that was pre CDs!).
From there though I went on to perform all over the world with Symphony Orchestras, jazz ensembles and big bands. I even ended up conducting and running one of the best big bands in Europe.
You may have heard my playing on TV shows like "24" and "Bones" or seen my big band perform for the award winning show "Rat Pack" in London's West End theatres and around Europe.
A couple years ago I decided to start sharing what I had learned about saxophone with people online. I have now helped literally thousands of players all over the world through my online Sax School and every day people in more than 70 countries use my lessons to improve their skills.

I've just started on the course, and am finding it informative and challenging. I have previously spent lots of money on lessons which have not given me what I have managed to pick up in a couple of hours on this course. Just wanted to say thanks!
Loving this course - I can already see great improvements. It will make a change from just playing melodies. I've just cancelled my music lessons - I'm far too busy with this to worry about anything else!
Your lesson plan in Blues Mastery is pretty darn close to perfect for a learner like myself…progressive layering of practice/ learnings that I suspect will help me with the basics while slowly building confidence that I can express my ideas. Thanks!
This is a perfect course for me. I am so glad I joined Blues Mastery, even though I have played for more than 10 years.
Thank you very much for this course Nigel. I'm the only person who is learning saxophone in my place - Dibrugarh. Here saxophone is very very popular but nobody knows how to play. So lots of expectation on me! I will practice like anything….
Just what I needed Nigel! I've only looked at the first two parts of module 1 and cant wait to get started as I was struggling with getting back playing /practice after a bit of a break . As I am only a beginner I am sure this will really help. Thanks
This is really great stuff Nigel! I have tried to learn the blues earlier, not being too committed. Having looked at the content and started with the first lesson I am sure I will succeed this time :-)
