Maybe. The sax was designed to give best results in the open air. A lot depends on what public nuisance laws apply where you happen to live.

I bought a saxophone, brought it home and gave it a shot. My wife ran into the music room and asked me if it was broken?

After getting up enough courage to try again, I gave it another shot. Dogs started howling, did everything they could to try and get under the bed, my wife asked me again if the saxophone was broken?

Sure looks nice sitting in it's stand.

But my my wife sure loves music so I called her in shortly after buying my pedal steel and I said, look honey I can play the "crying steel guitar". She replied, yes it's making me cry alright.

It's kinda nice playing with the door shut.

Hi Jerry
If you wanted to try a musical instrument to help your lung function I would recommend a Didgeridoo also called a Didge or Yidaki.
It is an Australian Aboriginal native instrument.

There is some medical evidence supporting it's use in opening up the airways to help with things like sleep apnoea/snoring etc.
It sounds good too!
A friend of mine visited a sleep physician who said that it would help/cure it and as he already had one he just started practicing on it and it has helped.

Thanks Daniel. Yeah, I'm hip to the instrument from down under. Interesting thought. No experience but definitely a possibility as all those issues are affecting me.
