How well do you want to play? :)

Price will most likely determine what type or brand of saxophone you play, like it did for me in 5th grade.

The main thing: Most people will advise you to pick up a "Beginning Alto Sax", like a Beginner's model of a Yamaha, which is very good! However, the better your beginning sax is, the better you will be. Although a beginner's model will make it easier for you to get a sound out as you're learning, a higher-level saxophone, like an intermediate or professional grade, will provide years more of playing potential AND will help you to produce a MUCH prettier tone as you work.

You'll still be able to play a higher-grade saxophone, it will just take a little more effort, which you won't even notice as a beginner! In the end, it is worth it.

Selmers, Yamahas, and Keilwerths are the best alto saxes in my opinion, but play what sounds good! :) All the best!
