EMBOCADURA

Hola soy principiante en sax alto, apenas tengo unos 3 meses, y por fin pude tocar una melodia completa con pocos desafines, uso una embocadora metalica no. 7 y una caña de plastico no. 2, es con lo que mejor me he acoplado, me cuesta mucho trabajo llegar a las notas altas a partir de la, si, do y re, y tambien batallo para que me alcance el aire en las notas bajas como do, si alguen me puede aconsejar para mejorar se los agradecere.

The Violin

A violin is taken to hospital. The doctor examines her and says:
"There's nothing wrong with you. But you broke your bow. How did that happen?"
Violin: "I only remember the thunderous applause for the composer."
Doctor: "Do you remember his name?"
Violin: "No. I think he was on the first page of the sheet music."

Need suggestions?

I'm playing in a group of two violins and two violas (including myself) for solo ensemble. We're looking for a piece, and would like to do a modern song (we've looked at Titanium and Rather Be if that gives you an idea of what we want) but haven't been able to find anything that suits our skill level, which is about beginner to intermediate. Does anybody have suggestions or links to sheet music? Thanks!

Embouchure

Hi, so I've been playing saxophone for about five years now, but for all this time I haven't been able to play longer than about 30 minutes when I practice. If anyone have some tips how to improve my embouchure I'll be very grateful. Thanks

Viola/Bass duet?

Would anyone happen to have any viola and bass duet pieces? Me and my friend are looking for something that is beginner-intermediate*, and the bass part does have something more than quarter notes. I'll also be okay with a Viola/Cello part, as long as it doesnt go below a low E. Thanks!

*We've been playing for about six months, and the hardest we've done is doing Moana songs (like 4 songs in one score). I'm sure we could also figure out a intermediate piece too.
