Memes??

So at my school, the band is basically a place of memes. Everyone goes around playing careless whisper, all star, megalovania, you name it! I was wondering if anyone knew of an alto saxophone version of the song "Mia Khalifa" specifically the part "Hit or miss- I guess they never miss, huh?". Thank you, sorry for my weird request.

Any bored composers?

I wanted to play Kelly Clarkson's 'Underneath the Tree' with my sax ensemble for our Christmas concert coming up, but the sheet music just doesn't seem to exist out there for the arrangement I need, or anything close. My ensemble includes Alto Tenor and Bari saxes, and we have somewhere around 8 members who play whichever one we need for a part. If someone has the time to make an arrangement of this song with these parts it would be greatly appreciated and I can also send you a recording of the performance if you'd like. The arrangement would have to be at least somewhat simple, and if the solo in the middle isn't quite right, or just has space for improv that's fine. I would probably need the piece in about 2 weeks in order to actually perform it, and if someone does take up the challenge, I do apologize for the time crunch.
Thanks y'all

Updating this group!

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!

HELP! Alto Saxophone Articulation

Hello everyone,

I am a alto saxophone player who has around 2 1/2 years of experience and has been in private lessons and band the whole time

I never learned/misunderstood articulation and have been just blowing air. I believed that I sounded pretty good that way and could play advanced pieces.

Recently I learned this was wrong and I honestly sound terrible if I try to articulate. Should I play in band without articulation and practice articulation at home until I can articulate in band without sounded bad? Not sure what to do and if you all have videos for me to watch to help with my articulation (not that I think they will help; my private lesson teacher is very helpful and I still couldn't get tonguing down at all in 30 minutes; this could be because I have been playing a different way for 2 1/2 years) 

I do wear Invisalign (not sure if that makes it harder to articulate)
