            Since I am fairly recent to playing sax I found the graduations very helpful in that it allows me to play quite a lot of tunes and gradually build up my ability and confidence
            My only criticism is that I thought not all the chosen tunes were appropriate for sax, but then that is only my personal opinion

            brilliant book with lots of well known pieces, i would recommend this book to anyone looking for some enjoyable pieces to play and i found that this is probably the the most reasonably priced book for the amount of pieces inside it.

            Les partitions proposées sont de 3 niveaux différents et ainsi une progression est envisageable sur une durée de plusieurs mois. Très bon achat.

            My background is that I have been playing alto sax for about a year but have been playing other instruments for many years. I found that a lot of the pieces are inaccurate. I actually brought the book to my music teacher because I thought I not playing correctly. She was also surprised by the poor accuracy/quality of some of the pieces.

            With an eclectic selection of songs ranging from Frank Sinatra to Feeder, there is something for everyone in this book. The absence of backing tracks limits the overall appeal; however, if you've always wanted to play any of the listed songs this book offers the opportunity to do so. The grading system is quite helpful highlighting trick rhythms, key etc. Good overall value for money.

            Absolutely fantastic! I bought it for my brother who has just started alto sax and he thoroughly enjoys it. It's absolutely perfect for a fairly new beginner. The '1 stars' are a slight challenge for him so he can gradually build up to the '3 stars'. There's such a great variety of songs that everyone knows at least a few of them. Most of them suit the alto sax perfectly, but I know that my brother is finding some tunes hard, as they are written in a very high pitch.

            Should have checked that a CD came with it but it doesn't, would have been a great book otherwise, any one know of a CD to play along to.
