I just started playing alto sax last week for a summer program and I think all in all it’s an easy instrument to start off on (maybe because I have been playing clarinet for 3 years). But I am still struggling with holding it. It’s very heavy and sometimes my thumb is swollen from holding it. My friend who has been playing alto sax for 4 years says my sax is bigger than hers. I’m sure its alto because my music teacher gave it to me and I can’t switch it out for a different one. Does anyone have any tips on how to hold the sax? Thxxx and I appreciate it- Flutinetist ^~^
Got questions about music, instruments, brand names, more?
Fellow members will try to answer them to the best of their ability.
(Life advice is fine as well, I suppose)
Piccola suite Op. 18 per clarinetto solo: Preludio, Allemanda, Sarabanda e Giga. It was written in 1999. I revised and edited this week. Thank you for listening.
We need more people in this group! Get the word out that we are the best flute group, and that the flute is the best instrument!
Please post which song you like best in this discussion and on the due date of the challenge I will see which song has the most votes (ties are aloud, there will be no tiebreakers). You can only give 1 vote and It can't be your song (If you have one for the challenge).
As a violin player I don´t know much about saxophone, so I would be interested in hearing what you think! Is it playable?
I jus got into JackSepticEye's hit song, All The Way, and I can not find any alto saxophone sheet musics for it. Does anyone have the time, effort or knowledge of making this song into sheet? It is a big ask, but I think It would be really fun!
and if you think other wise go jump in a river
