Hi Donna, my names is James Solomon I recently purchased my first Saxophone in the hopes of motivating me to learn to play. This is my life long dream to learn this amazing instrument. I grew up playing the tuba in the Salvation Army Band. I have not picked up an instrument in about 15 years. Now at the age if 62 I decided to fulfill my life long dream.
I just completed my two years anniversary of both heart and kidney transplants. And believe that it time what ever help you can give will surely be appreciated.
