Embouchure

Hi, so I've been playing saxophone for about five years now, but for all this time I haven't been able to play longer than about 30 minutes when I practice. If anyone have some tips how to improve my embouchure I'll be very grateful. Thanks

Help me read please?

This seems like the place to ask beginner level questions so please may I? 
About me; You will have heard my story many times over - I took some lessons years ago and recently found myself wanting to get back in. I was being tutored back then and although I took some lessons over some years I don't think i ever got out of the gate really. I have next to no skill and zero confidence but i want that to change. At this point I have very basic reading skills, given a simple enough piece and enough time to study it and practice I can get a melody and baseline going.

So anyway, with a renewed gusto and a determined mindset that this time i will self study, i found myself here looking for music to play. Beatles, that's a good place to start right? simple, easy and everyone knows the tunes.
Penny lane, that's a goodun I say to myself and then BOOM i hit my first snag. 
The score:-

second measure, the first notes in bass line require a G in two octaves, the higher G remains held while the lower notes descend further. How is this played?  the stretch is impossible or am i reading it wrong?

thank you for humouring my idiocy.

My first composition

Hello all, I'm looking to get my own work out there and get lots and lots of feedback, if you'd be so kind as to take a look at my own work I'd greatly appreciate it.
I only have one piece as of yet and it's still in work sort of, but it's a very beginner sort of thing so expect the worst lol.

Sax in the City Alain Crepin

Transcription to C-instruments

I own the partiture of 'Sax in the City of Alain Crepin' inclusive all parts and the altsaxophone solo for saxophone-orchester (Es and Bes instruments). I want to play the altsaxophone-solo with my accordeon-ensemble (all C-instruments). How can I transcript all the music to C-instruments (exclusive the Alt-saxophone solo)? Can someone help me?
