Because the size of the musical instrument is rather large for a small child, many saxophone players only encounter the instrument when they are in their teens. Although considered a classic music instrument, the saxophone has many people who give it modern interpretations. It’s hard to find a pattern among saxophone players – they come from all social categories and age, gender or ethnic background never seem to be decisive factors. I guess we could say that the regular sax player is that person which really enjoys doing this.
Of course, amateur players are very numerous, when compared to those that make a career out of playing the sax. Amateur players enjoy playing the saxophone as a hobby and they do not dedicate hours daily as practice time. Professional sax players invest a lot of time and energy while improving their performance and polishing their music style.
As stated before, anyone with a good amount of determination can learn how to play the saxophone. There are no age limits – as soon as a child is comfortable using the musical instrument saxophone lessons can be started. But, as with most musical instruments, learning how to play the saxophone takes time and practice. There is no quick road to success, although native talent does play an important part. However, with a good teacher and enough determination, each person has the potential to learn how to play the saxophone, if not on a stage at least for the delight of their friends and family.
