I'm about to get an alto saxophone within the next weeks. I will be joining band (Concert and Marching), and I was wondering if there was anything I need to know before I start. I can read defgabcdefg, and am starting to study scales and fingerings.
Hi! I am a 8th grade viola player! I am looking for a piece that I can practice and play at the end of the year in front of my teacher so that I can move up in my orchestra class. Please help me find a piece that's not too hard but can show that I am capable of playing at a 10th grade level. I would prefer that it be something modern or from a movie, but if you think it is a good piece please comment the name. I need all the help I can get. Please nothing too hard or too easy. Thanks!

Hello! I've been playing Tenor Saxophone for 5 years now and I am curious about a good investment. I currently have an Allora Intermediate Series Tenor and I would like to have a more permanent investment saxophone.
Another topic I would like to know more about is a good Soprano Saxophone investment since if you don't buy a good one, repairs can get quite expensive!
I joined a non-audition choir recently that only has about 8 members. I just found out that the Bass (the only male) is leaving in a few months. We have some events coming up andneed help find some SSA arrangements.
Just a little bit of background. Our S1s are S1s because they can only sing the melody and not because they can sing high. I often re-arrange music because of this. So anything where the melody is in a mezzo range is fine, I can give the high harmonies to the S2s.
Please help with recommendations! Thank you!
Hello Saxophone community! The topic of discussion is the hardest piece you have ever played. This can include any piece you have attempted to play or have played in the past as long as it was on a saxophone. Make sure to include the name of the piece along with who composed it. You can also include a piece you are currently learning!
So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?
P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.
EDIT: When the air rushes out of the octave openings, it hits against the pads, making an airy, thin sound. I think this effect is similar to what happens when you whistle, but bring a finger close to the opening of your lips, making a weakened, airy sound. What do I do?
Can someone please help me play in the lower register of the Alto Saxophone? I can only go to a low b.
I play viola, but today I purchased a violin off of a mutual friend because I also wan't to start learning violin as well.
The person I purchased it off of said she played it in high school, and it shows. It has numerous scratches, but it has a really nice tone.
Anyways, the label inside of it looks something like this:
Handmade in Germany
Any help would be very appreciated!
I wrote this as a 15 minute composition challenge that my band director put me on. Opinions?
