I taught myself to play sax in my late 20’s and I payed in local bands on and off over the years.
I chose the sax after seeing a local Indie band featuring a sax player who was a friend of a friend.
I play in the Inverurie Concert Band, the Aberdeen Concert Band and in Macswing, a swing band based in Aberdeen.
I heard about ASO through a fellow ICB member and decided to come along and see what it was like.
My first impressions were of a very friendly, inclusive bunch of players and a fantastic teacher.
In the ASO there is obviously a focus on the ins and outs of playing the sax. 
I like the opportunity to meet other sax players socially.
 Being exposed to new arrangements is great fun and good for improving sight reading as well as technique.
