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 ^~^

Done. Many thanks to all to comments to the half-finished version

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.

Guitar Soundfont for Musescore

Just in case anyone else is looking for some decent
guitar sounds to use with Musescore, I have been playing
with some from https://sites.google.com/site/soundfonts4u/
and can recommend the Guitars-Universal-V1.5 soundfont.

Is it has a good selection of guitar types and playing techniques
covering acoustic, nylon, electric, jazz etc. and the sound quality is high.

It works with MS 2.3.2 so I presume it will also work with MS 3.
