Welcome to the Randy Hunter Jazz Lessons Subscription Website!

Here you'll find everything from my complete Beginning Saxophone lesson series to my Stages I-IV Jazz Improvisation lesson series. My popular Soloing on Tunes lesson series is also here- all available at a low monthly price!

You'll still be able to purchase lessons individually or in sets at www.beginningsax.com, but by choosing to access the lessons via subscription, you can avoid downloads and have access to all of my lessons in streaming format.

As always, I'm happy to answer questions, so feel free to reach me at randy@randyhunterjazz.com.
