I have most of my experience writing for strings and brass but I tried to break out of my comfort zone this time by writing for a saxophone ensemble (per request for a school festival). This quartet is what I came up with. Any criticism about what I could do to make this fitting the style of a sax quartet would be greatly appreciated.
create lyrics then say the notes and I well make 2 a score.
Hello, This is a request for creators out here. I was wondering if someone could arrange the song: Ascension by Bruce Faulconer. I have no time to do it because I have to much going on with school. Thanks!
Hello all. Try as I might, I can't find a transcription for Leo P's solo of "get busy". Might anyone have an idea where to find it?
Thank you for any input!

You may already heard about us. We're the Young Composers' Online Orchestra ("YCOO"). Recently, we've started a new project - we're gonna play Elliot Butler's Drama for Orchestra No. 6.
In the process of preparing the parts for our members, we found out that we don't have any English Horns, Violas and Double Basses!
If you can play one (or more :P) of those instruments, please consider joining us either forever, or for the current project only. You could save a LOT of effort and hope we're all giving in our orchestra.
Have a great day,
Milan Steklý, moderator of the YCOO
I've just published this score
anyone know the history of the alto sax
Hello everyone, this is my first ever original song, written for my brass/guitar hybrid band, there isn't a drum part because i leave that for the drummer to experiment with. I would love feedback and criticisms!
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.
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!
A long time ago, there were peace between the woodwinds and the brass. No one disturbed one another, no one interacted with the other. It was until a clarinet got rich and married a trumpet. This was how the saxophones were created, - those disgusting brass clarinets, who once were part of us, but now are part of our past.
it can be played by soprano sax too!
This is the first of them , more no the way!
