I Used to Play is aimed at adults looking to get back into playing their instruments of yesteryear, and will help jumpstart their memory and comfort with music. Its number one goal is to get people re-acquainted with their instrument(s) by not only reviewing theory and technique with etudes, but also providing them with types of music they want to play, including pop, jazz, and classical tunes. Each book contains a CD with audio MP3 files of complete performances of most songs, plus accompaniment-only play-along versions. The CD also contains printable PDFs of piano parts for practice or performance opportunities. Its just the push former players need to fall back in love with their instruments again!

Comments about Carl Fischer I Used to Play Tenor Sax (Book + CD):
I offer a workshop at Church to help adults recover instrumental skills not exercised since high school or college days. When you are in that situation, you can't jump back in and play the last stuff you worked on: it's frustrating! And a beginner method book goes too slow, with the same result. This " I used to play" series strikes a good balance. That's why I use it in the workshop.
