Plz help!

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 need some new song ideas

A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.

Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.

The Storm

I had this idea last year of composing a suite that represents different types of weather. But it wasn't until yesterday that I started composing part of this suite. As you can probably tell from the post title, this part of the suite is supposed to represent a storm. That is why I chose the key to be a minor key. I went with C minor because it is the easiest of the minor keys for me to improvise in. I would have used 8va for the sixteenth note runs in the right hand. Problem is, the section that would be 8va goes by so fast that I'm not sure where to start the 8va. Similar thing goes for where I would typically use a clef change. So outside of the first few bars, I haven't put in any 8va markings or clef changes.

I have been doing these things to get across the feeling of a storm in the piece:

 - Keep the 16th note momentum up except for places where I decide to use a harmonic progression
- Use scalar passages with leaps to represent the strong wind
- Stark dynamic contrast(Like it quickly goes from pianissimo to fortissimo in the beginning 5 bars)
- Staccato to represent the rain
- Fast octaves to give a sense of turbulence(which is very fitting for music that is supposed to sound like a storm)
- Use the Fate Motif underneath a long scalar passage to give the feeling of a lightning flash
- Use harmonic progressions to represent the thunder
- Use diminished 7ths more often than dominant 7ths 

Here is the link to the piece if you want to give me feedback on what I have so far of it:
