We need help taking over musescore (because the RSA empire is too big)
Hi, please recommend a song for me to arrange a cool version for any type of saxophone. It can be any genre! I am hoping to put out a new piece every few weeks or so. I can also do piano or a sax/piano duet :)
I will say mine if someone says my fav.
the new edition
Say YES or ME LIKE BACON, or anything that means yes if you do!
Looking for some good pieces to play over the summer, Any Suggestions?
How many of you are marching tomorrow for Memorial Day? I don’t expect many responses cus it’s really late here, but I’d like to know. What are you playing? Our marching band *was* going to play National Emblem as we marched, but we cancelled the parade because of rain, so we’re just playing the National Anthem and Stars and Stripes Forever at the ceremony.
(Also, I apologize if my activity is annoying to any of you. I’m excited to talk with people who are as enthusiastic about music and saxophones as I am.)
For me I can’t wait to be done my piano sonata but I also am excited to compose a concerto for piano and orchestra!
I was wondering what the most common saxophone variant is, whether is be soprano, alto, tenor, or baritone. Can you tell me your type.
The local music store here, Groth Music (Also the biggest music store in Minnesota) has three different professional tenor sax models for sale, at least that’s what shows on their website. If they have more, I’ll look into it. For now, I just want to know if there are opinions.
The options are:
Selmer Paris Professional Model 54JU Tenor Saxophone
Selmer Paris Professional Model 84 Tenor Saxophone
Yamaha YTS-82ZII Custom Z Tenor Saxophone
Btw, I’m leaning towards the Custom Z because I want one with black lacquer so I can look cool at school :P
So my parents finally bought me an alto last March (I had 3 years under my belt then) and it's a student yamaha. I thought it sounded fine, and I played fairly decent with it. Marching band passed, and no problems. I got a new mouthpiece (Selmer c star) before auditioning for an all east TN honor band a few months ago in December (I made it), and I thought I sounded good still. My teacher said my sound was fine. Recently, for the past month or two, I've been noticing a subtle "buzzy" sound when I play, and at first I thought it was the reed. I changed reeds and found out that was not the case. I showed my band director, and he said it shouldn't be a problem. I showed my teacher, too, but he said he couldn't hear it. I even gave my friend a chance to play my sax, and we both could hear it. Fast track to a few days ago; I got my sax out to start practicing, and immediately I was hit with the very noticeable buzzy sound... but much worse than before. Almost every note has the buzzy sound in it; especially middle g through middle d. I'm going to meet my teacher about it in a few days. But, would anyone know any reason for this just suddenly happening? I feel like it could be my mouthpiece, since it has tiny scratches here and there, or my alto itself, or both. Any advice would be appreciated.
Heya, I'm bringing this problem to the saxes of Musescore because I'm too lazy to make an account for another website and I have a marching band performance on Memorial Day coming up fast. (Just to clarify, this issue is on my tenor.)
So, I've had this problem for my entire time playing saxophone and I've mostly gotten around it with my embouchure, but it's gotten worse. If I try to play G or G#, it squeaks. Quite badly. Just today I noticed that if I kind of focus that squeak, it's actually a really bad palm key Eb, so I was wondering if it was a palm key leak or something else. I did also notice that several of the pads on the palm keys of my (I believe it's a YTS-26? I'll edit the post if it isn't) tenor saxophone were quite a bit out of alignment, especially the high F key, which was several millimeters off center. So, I was wondering if it is a key alignment issue or something else. Any suggestions?
Edit: The palm keys are also really loose on the tone holes, so that won't help. I was thinking of messing with the leaf springs, but I'm no professional. (Finally, that 4th grade science project on levers will help me)
Hy guys, I play Alto Sax and I'm 14. I play it since I was 10 but I don't feel any improve in technique since 1 year ago. I was wondering how I improve. Thanks for who answers me!
Mine is either the Bari or the Alto saxophone. :)
I am looking for some translation for alto sax of following songs:
Conan the Barbarian - Recovery
Stan Bush - On my own alone
Jerry Goldsmith / Rambo - It’s a long road
Or any songs of basil poledouris.
If any can help out that would be great !
