Dear Nigel, When did you start playing the saxophone. In school or thought it would fun to learn.
Nigel says:
Dear Sam,
I started on the recorder at 10, then took up the trumpet. I switched to clarinet at about 14 then added sax at 17. Didn't discover the soprillo until I was 44!

Dear Nigel Wood
I am only twelve years old and learned saxophone for only about one and a half years,can play well in tenor saxohone and alto saxophone,reach high D in soprano saxophone can I play a soprillo saxophone?I also want to know something about world saxophone congress.
Nigel says:
Dear Bailey Liu
Well done for your saxophonic achievements. High D on a soprillo is much harder to sustain than on a soprano. I recommend you continue to master the challenges of the soprano before buying a soprillo, but do get to try one out if you can.

The next WSC - SaxOpen is the 17th World Saxophone Congress & Festival.
