Yamaha - Start small, Dream BIG! 

Learning an instrument has so many benefits to your social, mental and health wellbeing that not many people know about. Especially those starting out. There’s research to suggest from Yamaha that playing music can train your brain to think faster. This comes in handy when you’re thinking of an excuse for forgetting your sheet music for your music lesson.

Not only does playing music cognitively help you, you begin to feel better too! Endorphins are released when you relax and are happy, a common feeling when playing music. This is the best escape route from stress and a brilliant pastime when you’ve got a spare 5-10 minutes. You can make new friends at music practise or those open band nights increasing your pride, confidence and self-esteem.

Yamaha recognise how important playing music is to our lives and have released their Start Small Dream Big campaign. You can see how others are joining Yamaha in their quest to getting more people into music. Search #StartSmallDreamBig on social media and be sure to upload your photos and use this hashtag.

The perfect starter instrument for aspiring sax players, the YAS-280 alto saxophone is designed for comfortable hand and fingering positions, and a bright, responsive sound.

The YAS280 saxophone offers a perfect start because it is designed with the young beginner in mind. Relatively light-weight and ergonomically shaped, the YAS 280 is easy to hold and to play. The intonation is perfect, as you would expect from Yamaha, and it is easy to get a great sound. The Yamaha design offers beginners optimum support, thus greatly assisting both learning progress and creativity.

Based on the highly recommended and successful YAS275 saxophone the new YAS280 is even further enhanced with a new, more stable neck receiver and a new low B-C# connection for better adjustment.

A redesigned neck receiver promotes a quick response and ease of play while also increasing the durability of the mechanism.

An improved mechanism from low B-C# ensures the consistent closing of the low C# key and promotes a clear response from notes in the low range of the instrument.

All Yamaha saxophones feature an adjustable thumb-rest to allow for precise and comfortable hand and fingering position.
