I've No Idea What To Do

So my parents finally bought me an alto last March (I had 3 years under my belt then) and it's a student yamaha. I thought it sounded fine, and I played fairly decent with it. Marching band passed, and no problems. I got a new mouthpiece (Selmer c star) before auditioning for an all east TN honor band a few months ago in December (I made it), and I thought I sounded good still. My teacher said my sound was fine. Recently, for the past month or two, I've been noticing a subtle "buzzy" sound when I play, and at first I thought it was the reed. I changed reeds and found out that was not the case.  I showed my band director, and he said it shouldn't be a problem. I showed my teacher, too, but he said he couldn't hear it. I even gave my friend a chance to play my sax, and we both could hear it. Fast track to a few days ago; I got my sax out to start practicing, and immediately I was hit with the very noticeable buzzy sound... but much worse than before. Almost every note has the buzzy sound in it; especially middle g through middle d. I'm going to meet my teacher about it in a few days. But, would anyone know any reason for this just suddenly happening? I feel like it could be my mouthpiece, since it has tiny scratches here and there, or my alto itself, or both. Any advice would be appreciated.

John Williams- Remembering Childhood

in Piano

Hello! I am hoping someone here can help me. :)

I’ve been searching for an arrangement of a song from “Hook” entitled “Remembering Childhood” by John Williams. I have seen many arrangements of a song called “I Remember” but that is only a small portion of the song I’m looking for. The part of the song I want especially is the upbeat, exciting part of the song (when he finds his happy thought and flies again). It is one of my favorites and I would love to play a piano version. I know it won’t quite be the same as the original with the orchestra, but I’ve seen people on here do some amazing arrangements of other pieces!

Does anyone on here know of an arrangement of this particular song?

Thanks!
