I spent a few years playing alto saxophone and am returning to it again over a decade later, this book is perfect for re-familiarizing myself with the different notes and tones, not too complex as to get so frustrated I give up.

The music notation section is helpful but doesn't help Kindle users. It would have been nice to have a PDF download link or something for the worksheets.
