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 ^~^
I can't decide if I should switch to Baritone or Tenor Sax, or if I should stay an Alto Sax. Can you help me decide
It's a russian folk song(I don't remember its name).
I noticed there's no Diabelli's rondo so I added it.
Spielst du eigentlich ein Instrument? Wenn ja, welches?
Feel free to leave your comments :)
I'm pretty new and I'd love to know anybody is composing classical PIANO solo Musics! I'd love to listen to classical composer's piano music!
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!
