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 ^~^
A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.
Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
Looking for some good pieces to play over the summer, Any Suggestions?
I was wondering what the most common saxophone variant is, whether is be soprano, alto, tenor, or baritone. Can you tell me your type.
I can't decide if I should switch to Baritone or Tenor Sax, or if I should stay an Alto Sax. Can you help me decide
I have auditions coming up and I need a few songs that I can look into to start playing. Sophisticated Lady is the current piece I'm playing, but I'm curious as to what other classic jazz songs feature the bari sax.
Same computer and browser that I have been using every time I report these issues(Windows 10 OS, Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, Mozilla Firefox browser).
This icon issue started several days back. But at first, it only affected me when I initially logged in and as soon as I went to another page, the icons would show up correctly(like the arrow for the upload icon, the bubble for the comment icon, and everything else).
Today, it is more permanent. No matter what page I'm on, the icons look like gibberish. Like the upload icon looks like F0RR in a little box instead of the upload icon. Only time on the site makes the icons look normal. What is causing this and when will the icons get back to normal without me having to wait to see the normal icons?
Just to clarify, the reply and like icons aren't affected and neither is the notification icon but pretty much every other icon is affected.
Hi all, i would like to have a chord analyser :-)
it should works like this steps:
- Import a Midifile
- 1. function -> Analysis of the Harmony
- 2. function -> write the chord at right part on the score
maybe with the same function(analysis of harmony) it's possible to create a new voice for example the 3. or the 5. -> it would be a great help for choir scores.
Thank you for your great work.
Is it interesting for you to have a posibility to filter searching results by key signature?
For example, you search 'Mozart', filter by instrument 'Piano', and then filter by key signature like '2 sharps'.
Does it really have demand?
Thank you for your answers!
For some reson when I play a score with a drumline battery, the app will play completely wrong sounds (whistles for tenors ,bongos for snare, etc,) I've tried to re download the app twice but I get the same problem.
Does any one know a fix?
I (and my choir) want to add "Elanor Rigby" (Version King Singers) to our program. I've been looking for a midi - file to create rehearsal- aids, found nothing!
Soooooo - I tried the pdf - converter and actually did get a mscx - file back, only I can't open it. Apparently it was created with MS 3.0
I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with MS 2.3.2 No matter what I've tried so far ,y computer refuses to update to MS 3.0
Any chance that anyone can / will / would help me and convert the mscx - file to midi?
Thank you so much in advance.
