I’ve been playing saxophone for many years, but I’m still very bad at repairing it. Has anyone at least replaced some pads on sax or regulated something? Any experience on the topic, any suggestions or advice?
Hello all. I just finished the MYS(Metropolitan Yout Symphony) summer cam, adnd decided to audition for the year long program. For the audition you need to know 9 scales(4 sharps 4 flats and c major) and an solo audition piece. Obviou.sly i play the viola, and i need some help finding a good piece. They suggested some pieces, but the only on e i hadn't played has the easiest one. So i wanted to find out if anyone here had some suggestions
how do i get better at it. it's not a new concept for me i have to shift in most of my music but it could be better i don't know how to make it better. I've heard of scales but all i know are 2 octave scales I know how to do those already but i know there different types of scales that I've never been introduced to.

I don't know if it's just me or if it's the way we are taught but as viola i don't shift much and it sucks because when i do try to shift for the most part it's not the best it's definitely gotten better i can handle 3rd position and majority of 5th position but even number shifting seem to be a problem like 2nd and 4th and i've notice that it affects my confidence when playing up there witch causes me to shift slower and more sloppy people have told me to do scales but the only scales i know are 2 octave scales
Feedback is appreciated and feel free to perform it if you desire

I know that this group isn't very active but I think it should be!
If we updated the profile image and background we could attract alot more newer people to share and express their ideas on saxophone.
I think its important also, to change the name to be inclusive to also military band saxophone. Military band is a very sepecial place in the history of the saxophone and such we should engage in that part of our history aswell!
I've watched countless videos on vibrato, yet I still can't develop a good vibrato, or any at all. Any clear explanations or tips would be extremely helpful!
What saxes does everybody play here? I play alto and baritone.

Joaquin Rodrigo composed Concierto de Aranjuez in Paris, rue Saint Jacques, 159, in 1939, for Regina Sainz de la maza. Allegro con spirito is the first movement from Concierto de Aranjuez.
This is a work of transcription and I made several adjustments to orchestration without regard to mood and character.
great hope that this work will inspire other classical guitar and orchestra works
Hi I’m new, I need some slow songs to practice my tone.
Does anyone have some good sheet music for me to play I need some new music? I am kinda getting bored with my music.
I'm looking for a clarinet solo to practice the upper register. Anything 8-10 grade level would be fine.
I'm new staff on musescore.com, and I'm also musician.
Maybe it can be interesting for you to see some orchestra cover.
And it will be interesting to know your opinions about it:
I have to say bass. In an orchestra with two of each woodwind, adding a desk of bass saxophones has great results. With the saxophones playing the bass part, the bassoons are free to play the tenor part. You could also use tenor or baritone saxophones to play the tenor and the bassoons play bass but I prefer to use the bassoons as tenors.
In here are some nice woodwind parts, e.g.
flute and oboe solo in Nr. 1
Nr. 2 for 8 alto saxs
Nr. 4 for 3 clarinets + bass clarinet
