Yes. Alto and Baritone players will want to choose the E Flat (Eb) pack on checkout, Tenor and Soprano players will want to pick the B Flat (Bb) pack. The entire video series is presented on alto saxophone, however the playalong tracks are presented on Alto and Tenor, depending on which pack you choose. All of the fingerings and techniques are the same across all saxophones.
Saxophones are transposing instruments, meaning they are pitched differently than a piano or a guitar.
To match the note of C on the piano, an Alto or Baritone saxophone must play an Eb (pronounced E flat).
To match the note of C on the piano, a Tenor or Soprano saxophone must play a Bb (pronounced B flat).
For that reason, theSaxTuition Beginner Series comes in 2 different versions: E Flat (Eb) and B Flat (Bb).
The fingerings for each note on the saxophone are identical across the entire saxophone family, i.e. a G on Alto is played the same as a G on tenor, even though the actual pitch they produce is different.
Apart from the playalong tracks, the 2 versions are actually identical to each other, as saxophone technique between the 4 instruments is fully transferable. The playalong tracks on the Eb version are recorded on Alto Saxophone, whilst the tracks on the Bb version are recorded on Tenor Saxophone, as these are the most popular (and recommended) choices for a beginner. The videos for both versions of the series are presented on alto saxophone, as the techniques and fingerings are the same across all instruments.
More information about the differences between saxophones can be found on our Saxophone Guide page.
