Save years of slow progress and practice room burnout. When "white knuckle discipline" alone won't get you past your technical limitations, this system WILL.

Take it from renowned recording artist and master class clinician, Adam Larson...

Adam's Story: From Inspiration, to Frustration

I was eleven years old when I first started playing the saxophone. Driving down the road to a basketball game, my father had the Brecker Brothers album, Back to Back on the car stereo. A little over three minutes into the song "Night Flight", I heard a flurry of notes from the very bottom of the saxophone all the way to the top.

It was at this exact moment that I knew I wanted to be able to play like that - with impeccable time, clarity, and sound.

Awestruck and inspired, I felt a burning desire to develop the technique to play like Brecker.

Unfortunately, I came to learn that inspiration alone wasn't enough. Instead of "tearing it up" like my new idol, I found myself running into walls of technical limitation, unable to move the metronome to that next click marking.

Tension Was the Culprit

Over those early years of struggling with my technique, I became more and more aware of how I was carrying tension, not only in my body, but also in my mind. I realized that to play fast, I had to lose the tension. But it was easier said than done.

My Personal Breakthrough

It was one thing to have an awareness of what was holding back my technical skills, but knowing what to do about it was quite another.

Enter my saxophone teacher, Larry Harms, who would forever change the way that I thought about technique. Larry showed me a new approach to quickly and gracefully moving around the horn. I immediately found that this way of practicing technique made sense, and most importantly, delivered results faster than I would have imagined.

All of this was extremely exciting because I could instantly see the long term benefits for my technique and ability to improvise at any tempo.

The Feeling of Finally Hearing Those Blazing-Fast Lines Come Out of My Horn

Within weeks, I was playing with a new level of dexterity and clarity. The tension that was holding me back? Nearly dissolved.

Using both Larry's lessons, as well as the learnings from my own extensive trial-and-error, I've been able to find a level of technique that's given me the tools I need as a busy professional jazz saxophonist.

Your Turn to Burn

Unfortunately, too many of us have been taught to blindly (and tediously!) practice scales and arpeggios without really uncovering those holes in our technique that are holding us back as musicians. Luckily, there is another way - a more efficient and, believe it or not - enjoyable way that I constantly see moving players to that next level - in every aspect of their playing, not just technique.

Now, I've distilled into a uniquely powerful learning program the exercises, techniques, and concepts which I've witnessed to be the biggest "game-changers" for myself as well as for my students, so that you too can take your technique to a level that you never thought possible.

If you've ever experienced the same frustrations as I described earlier, then I'd like to invite you to skip those years of struggle I experienced. I firmly believe that if you follow this program at your own pace, you will realize your own ability to execute those lightning-fast flurries of notes, and keep up with just about any tempo that's thrown your way.


"This course is and has been an immensely effective tool for me to improve my technique and fill in gaps that many of my teachers missed in their approach to teaching the technical aspect of the saxophone. One of the best aspects of this course is the fact that Adam details the practical applications of all of this technical work, even including exercises and examples for use over conventional tunes! I can’t recommend this program highly enough – anyone looking to fill in any technical gaps will do well to check this out!"

Adam Larson
Adam Larson

Adam Larson is a saxophonist, recording artist, composer and educator who began playing saxophone at the age of 11. Described by critic Howard Reich of The Chicago-Tribune as “a player for whom the word ‘prodigious’ was coined”, by Peter Hum of the Ottawa Citizen as “a saxophonist who brings Donny McCaslin and Mark Turner to mind”, and by Nate Chinen of The New York Times as “the sort of jazz musician who gets flagged early on as a promising talent and then hustles to meet every requirement for success”, Larson has garnered numerous awards that distinguish him as one of the most promising artists of his generation. Adam holds BM and MM degrees in Jazz Performance from The Manhattan School of Music, where he graduated with honors as a Master's student as the recipient of the William H. Borden Award for Outstanding Performance in Jazz.

Adam is an endorsed artist for P. Mauriat saxophones and Vandoren reeds, ligatures and mouthpieces.

Finally, Technique With No Speed Limit

There aren't too many experiences in music that stir up raw energy like hearing the naturally rich and powerful sound of the saxophone spitting out rapid-fire notes with surgical-precision.

In this one-of-a-kind, step-by-step video series (the only course you'll ever need on sax technique), if you take action at your own pace, (just for starters) you will:

  • Be able to steer the giant sound of the sax through high-speed blisteringly-fast runs, flurries, and melodic spirals
  • Experience the horn as a pleasure to play, as it becomes an extension of your body
  • No longer freeze up when someone counts off a tune at 275 bpm
  • Find an intensity in your playing that sparks the "adrenaline factor" in your audience
  • Be that player who nobody wants to take a solo after

Faster Than You Might Think - If You Take Action On This Material, You'll...

  • Hear and feel Every. Single. Note. speaking clearly out of the horn at levels of speed you've never approached before
  • As quickly and efficiently as possible, develop a deeper level of "muscle memory" for lightning-fast execution than you ever thought possible, allowing you to approach, and even achieve, a "virtuoso"-level of technique
  • Feel comfortable playing anything, in any key
  • Eliminate confusion by knowing the number of beats-per-minute to shoot for to ensure that you'll almost always be able to consistently perform any given passage in a "real world" situation
  • Learn how to position your hands and the rest of your body in order to overcome the feeling of tension that's preventing you from fluently moving throughout the range of the horn
  • Be able to tear it up on those super-fast tempos, now that your faster fingers are able to keep up with your "faster hearing"
  • Find yourself practicing technique with purpose and direction, focused on results, not just blindly practicing scales and arpeggios as nothing more than a "necessary evil" and a chore

Beyond Completely Revolutionizing Your Technique, You'll Also...

  • Become the rare breed of musician who is fully conscious of what they're playing on a mental AND intuitive, ear-based level, as opposed to someone who just lets their "fingers do the walking"
  • Develop a whole new, vocabulary of hip and modern musical ideas to use in your solos, since your ears and your fingers are no longer limited by what would normally fall comfortably on the horn
  • Save time by practicing smarter, not harder, boosting your skills in advanced harmony, and general improvisation, all while cranking up the BPM's on the metronome
  • Never, ever run out of things to practice
  • Achieve a newfound level of control over your tone quality and embouchure, as the lessons in the video push you (at your own pace!) to get comfortable moving around the horn in ways that would occur naturally to only the most advanced saxophonists
  • Gain a new level of confidence as a musician, as the material in the program impacts every single aspect of your playing beyond just technique, from sound, to originality, to the emotional impact your playing has on an audience

Even if you've already tried a ton of saxophone technique method books and videos...

You may have had the experience of not making it all the way through one or more books or courses, leaving you feeling like you fell short and missed out on something cool. Lightning-Fast and Crystal-Clean is different because it's intended to be a program that lasts you forever. In fact, you're almost not supposed to get through the entire program. The results come from the process, not the completion.

This program will get you to that next level and breathe new life into your technique practice if...

  • you have at least 30 minutes per week to work with the lessons
  • you are open to being pushed outside of your musical comfort zone
  • you can be patient with yourself, working towards nailing just a few exercises at a time instead of focusing on crossing a "finish line".

Why We're So Sure That This Method Works

Plainly and simply - Adam has seen this work, consistently, time and time again for both himself as well as for countless students over his years as a teacher and a highly sought-after clinician for music programs across the United States and beyond. By leading you to find and then eliminate each and every weak spot in your technique, there is no way for you to avoid making major strides when you put these lessons into practice.

“Adam’s video course LIGHTING-FAST AND CRYSTAL CLEAN is a great one-stop-shop for any student interested in saxophone technique. As someone highly visual, I wish this kind of video course would have been around when I started playing the saxophone. Congrats on a great online learning tool!”

Ueli Dörig - author of SAXOPHONE SOUND EFFECTS (Berklee Press) and SAXOPHONE UNIVERSITY (Hal Leonard)

Frequently Asked Questions

What level saxophonist is this program designed for?

Almost any level, really! If you are brand new to the instrument and are looking for a "how to play saxophone" course, then this is not going to be the best place to start. Otherwise, if you are a saxophonist willing to step out of your comfort zone, then taking action on the material here will be absolutely game-changing. Even if you're very advanced, you are extremely likely find some new "blind spots" in your technique, not to mention opportunities to creatively expand on the concepts and exercises in the videos.

There's so much more to being a great saxophonist than playing a bunch of fast notes. Are you guys trying to turn me into a cheesy showoff with no musicality?

Good question! Any time a musician makes showing off a priority in their playing, they are communicating musical immaturity and even low self-confidence. What we're offering you is a new level of creative control, allowing you to blow the doors off with blistering tornados of 16th and 32nd notes when appropriate, OR... glide smoothly and slowly from note to note in a hyper-exposed situation such as a slow ballad.

Can't I just get all of this stuff for free on Youtube?

Let's say you were able to spend the days/weeks/months it would take to comb through Youtube for a comparable collection of uniquely effective videos backed by years of proven results. It would then be up to you to figure out how put it all together in an attractive format that works on any device and makes your custom program a pleasure to work through. Then, you'd have to transcribe all of the exercises in the video to crank out the sheet music in order to let you work on the exercises away from the video. So technically, the answer is...SURE!

I'm not really good with computers - will I be able to use this without wanting to pull my hair out?

If you're tech-savvy enough to check your email, then you're almost certainly tech savvy enough to use this program. Once you purchase the course, it's just a matter of logging into the website, and all of the videos and sheet music are right there on screen, you don't have to download or install any apps or do any nonsense like that. And if you get stuck for any reason, just reach out and someone will help you right away!

How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like (that means no recurring subscription fees) - across any and all devices you own.

"This masterclass provides Adam Larson’s considerable knowledge of improvisation and saxophone technique distilled into palatable segments with clear goals in mind. Each concept he presents is a foundational aspect in playing saxophone and improvising at a high level. Adam continues to prove himself an invaluable resource as a player and educator. I am delighted with the amount of quality information presented and would recommend this masterclass, and Adam, to anyone."

Andrew Strzyzewski - graduate assistant, Jazz Studies Area - Northern Illinois University

At Last, It's Time to Move from "Burned-Out", To Just, "Burning"

I know the feeling of walking away from a lame practice session, beaten down and unable to concentrate on anything but what went wrong.

But a great practice session? Is there anything else that leaves you feeling so confident? So filled with the spirit of music that excites us, counting hours till the next time, and ultimately - making serious improvements.

So I invite you to imagine - what would it feel like to live in an energizing cycle of consistent game-changing musical breakthroughs?

Maybe you can seeing yourself "cuttin' heads" over a blazing bop tune, or hearing the "hoots and hollers" from a packed dance floor as you blow the doors off with hypnotic, spiraling chromatic patterns over a solid funk groove.

Or, maybe you can imagine simply going about your day feeling upbeat and self-assured after making a breakthrough in the practice room earlier that day.

Now, imagine all of that starting not some time in the distant future, but right now. Today.

So with that, Adam and I look forward to helping you along in your new musical journey.

Happy blazing,
