Beginner Student Saxophones

Starting a musical journey with a reliable, quality saxophone is the key to a successful experience. Meyer Music offers brand-name student level saxophones as rent-to-own, matching teacher preferences with free accessories including the school book and music stand.

Step-Up Saxophones

As a player progresses, their saxophone should match their growing skills. A student level saxophone is a great way to start a musical journey and a Step-Up saxophone will take a player even further.

Comparison of student and step-up saxophones. Student saxes feature narrower neck bores to help beginner produce good tone, they include a student-level mouthpiece, are made of materials designed for durability and affordability, and include all standard components needed for reliable performance. Step-up saxes feature wider neck bores for fuller sound, higher grade mouth-pieces, are made of higher grade metals for richer tone, metal resonators for tonal projection, specialized key placement, added key mechanisms, and ribbed construction for more stability.


Meyer Music offers an array of high-end saxophone brands, including Yamaha, Selmer, and Cannonball.  As Michigan’s only Shokunin Yamaha dealer, their premier level, we also provide access to a wide range of advanced Yamaha options.
