You may have a small child who just cannot wait to begin! As well as the clarinet, which is a good instrument for smaller hands to begin on, we have the Alphasax, and also some curved soprano saxes.
The Alphasax is made by Trevor James. It has fewer notes at the top and bottom, retaining just over two octaves (plenty to be going on with for a learner). The reduction in metal keywork makes the instrument much lighter as well as needing less stretch to reach the lowest notes. As well as small children, some adults prefer the Alphasax if they experience neck pain or rheumatic pains with a standard sax, helping to keep us playing well into old age! We always have a stock of new, ex-demo and ex-rental instruments.

We also have the curved soprano saxophone, which as it sounds, is smaller than an alto saxophone. The body is curved to look like an alto sax, and some children use it as it is much lighter. Click below for more details:
If you prefer the sound and size of a tenor sax, we have a variety of instruments to suit. We offer the Yamaha YTS-280 which is available from stock, also some ex-demo condition Trevor James instruments which are perfect for the learner.
