I'm so glad there are more late bloomers on this stie than elsewhere. I am 28 years old, married and live in southwestern ontario, Canada
I was finding mostly kids learning how to play

I am new to the saxophone. I played the alto clarinet and bass clarinet in school from grade 6-12. I was in the school band, and played in the Legion band as well, as I was an Army Cadet! Since the end of highschool I haven't touched anything but piano, and I am not very good..lol. I am excited to get back into palying music. I tinker on the piano once and a while but I can only play right hand or left hand.. lol not at the same time.. Anyway..

I am still waiting on arrival of the Alto Saxophone actually. I did not get the best of saxophones, but I am using the cheap model in order to prove to those around me that I really am interested and excited about playing. I am getting an Alto Sax, cause it seems that is most common for learning on, but I like the smooth low sounds of the Tenor, and hope to have both one day.

It's not that I am being discouraged from playing, its just that I don't have a very musical family, and they think I am on a whim. My husband doesnt want me to invest hundreds of dollars on something I am "learning". Pretty much I have been given the same sort of deal you would give your children.. prove you can and will play this cheap one and we will think about getting you a better model.

I just hope that it plays "good enough" to practice the fingering and techniques.

I look forward to discussing all things saxophone with you.

I have been reading the boards and find them most helpful in learning more about saxophones in general.

Welcome Amanda! Glad to see you getting back to playing. I, too, am back to playing sax after a long hiatus. And I also have a nonmusical husband who just indulges my playing. ;)
good luck
