Right! So you are beginner and you can’t read music, and you love the sound of the saxophone. Well then you are just like I was a year ago. But then Mark Archer comes along and well... Life changes in a glorious way. His passion and enthusiasm for this beautiful instrument is plain to see in this fabulously constructed book. From the initial technical explanations to the first forays into creating some sounds, he is there guiding and encouraging you to 'just have a go'. The unique form of tab allows you to start playing songs very quickly. I was gob-smacked at how quick I was starting to play those first tunes and how exciting it was waking up my 'musical ear'. I soon found that my day wasn't complete without my daily liaison with my 'dream machine' and couldn't wait to move on to the next steps in the book. And before I knew it, after only nine months, I was standing on stage with a group of other 'Archer Inspired' students playing that great pop sax classic 'Baker Street'. Wow, could life get any better! Pure unadulterated FUN!! So if you want to learn to play this wonderful instrument, have fun and lay down some firm foundations for your future enjoyment... Get the book! - Dave Inman - Osteopath. You don't have to read music... Anyone can learn 'If you're looking for a book which gets straight to the point without the waffle and is easy to understand for an absolute beginner then I'd highly recommend Blowout Sax' - Stuart Matson, Music Promoter. 'I was really nervous when I started the saxophone because I hadn't done any music before but the way Mark teaches helped me play quite tricky pieces really quickly... the book is a lot of fun and works!' - Young student Elliot. 'Learning to play the saxophone using Mark's book is great fun, easy to follow and gets you playing tunes quickly. I am so pleased I found out about Mark and his fun book and way of teaching' - Janet, Librarian.

The music is now downloadable to replace CD. Simply email Mark directly at and he will send you a dropbox link.
