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 ^~^
vous en pensez quoi ?
This piece is written to memorise my university days (almost exactly 10 years ago I was enrolled), in which I used half a theme from the university anthem.
The half finished status made me stressed, and influenced my lab works and my thesis writing. Thus, I just used all my spare time to finish it ASAP.
I am not very satisfied with connection between different parts, especially that between parts D2-D3-E. Ideas are welcomed, and I will try to modify it when I recovered from the current mood.
As a violin player I don´t know much about saxophone, so I would be interested in hearing what you think! Is it playable?
I jus got into JackSepticEye's hit song, All The Way, and I can not find any alto saxophone sheet musics for it. Does anyone have the time, effort or knowledge of making this song into sheet? It is a big ask, but I think It would be really fun!
Up until this arrangement, I've only ever arranged for a capella and general choral settings, but I fell in love with the intro to "2009" and just had to arrange it. Please give me feedback and enjoy!
I'm looking for simple (but not dumb!) arrangements for a group of traditional players of all ages and a range of skills. We are mostly a fiddle group, with 10 -12 fiddles, a couple of banjos, a piano and 1-2 guitars. We range in age from 10 to 85! I've been combing the internet and I've found a couple of things right here in musescore that look more interesting than the standard fare. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone.
