Lukas and the sax

Lukas finally got his saxophone yesterday!  He's so excited to learn to play it.  It's definitely harder to play (hard to blow and get a nice sound out of it) than the recorder, but I know learning the recorder first has helped him with the fingering.  He's practicing blowing loooonnnggg notes on it to get the feel of it and build muscle strength in his cheeks and diaphragm.  He's learning to not blow his cheeks out, too.

Go Lukas!

Best instrument ever, Lukas! You can do it.
(I'm not biased :) I've only been playing sax for 10 years)
