The saxophone lessons are only offered to slightly older children starting at 9-10 years old. This is primarily due to the size of the saxophone. If younger children wish to learn the saxophone we encourage them to start in the pre-instrumental or recorder classes before moving on to saxophone. This will assist them considerably when beginning the saxophone.
Saxophones are available for hire from the music school. Please refer to our instrument hire page for further information.
All saxophone pupils are encouraged to be in one of the bands at the Papakura Music School and there is also the option to play in the orchestra for the more advanced pupils. Students need to purchase their own book and music stand.
All books required are available for purchase from the music school.Instrument Hire Schedule
