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.
Hy guys, I play Alto Sax and I'm 14. I play it since I was 10 but I don't feel any improve in technique since 1 year ago. I was wondering how I improve. Thanks for who answers me!
Heya, I'm bringing this problem to the saxes of Musescore because I'm too lazy to make an account for another website and I have a marching band performance on Memorial Day coming up fast. (Just to clarify, this issue is on my tenor.)
So, I've had this problem for my entire time playing saxophone and I've mostly gotten around it with my embouchure, but it's gotten worse. If I try to play G or G#, it squeaks. Quite badly. Just today I noticed that if I kind of focus that squeak, it's actually a really bad palm key Eb, so I was wondering if it was a palm key leak or something else. I did also notice that several of the pads on the palm keys of my (I believe it's a YTS-26? I'll edit the post if it isn't) tenor saxophone were quite a bit out of alignment, especially the high F key, which was several millimeters off center. So, I was wondering if it is a key alignment issue or something else. Any suggestions?
Edit: The palm keys are also really loose on the tone holes, so that won't help. I was thinking of messing with the leaf springs, but I'm no professional. (Finally, that 4th grade science project on levers will help me)
My "The Voyage of the James Caird" song is inspired by my Most favorite book Iv'e ever read. Here is the link:
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
So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?
P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.
From now on, all posts about foreign dresses will be deleted. This is kind of getting annoying.
Mine is either the Bari or the Alto saxophone. :)
I would like to ask whether I should upload all the previous sheet music and combine to one file, or upload the new sheet music. Thank you.
Song 12: Longing for Spring
(As for song 9 and song 10, they are the failed score that I would not like to upload separately, I would rather combine them into a file together.)
I am wanting to create a version of Chopin's Op. 28 No 7 prelude in A where the first and last 8 bars are on two separate lines aligned vertically. I found that @ClassicMan has already created the score, but now want to split/shift it to get things aligned - so measure 1 would be right above measure 9, 2 about 10, etc. , and each measure is the same width.
All 8 bars of each would be on the same line, so likely need landscape or something as well.
Is this possible?
Any Musescore members out there marching this summer?
We'd love to meet up with you along the way on tour, snap a picture for our social media, and share a small gift.
So, if you're marching post your name, corps and instrument you play in comments so we can connect (and your fellow members can cheer you on).
I posted a new (old) piece.This is a fugue I wrote when I was a student of music at Hamburg.
Ho fatto un nuovo upload. È una fuga on do minore che ho scritto nel 1979 quando ero ancora studente di musica in Germania.
I am new to musescore. what groups and people would you recommend joining\following?
Have any questions? Ask me and I'll answer them.
MuseScore community, can you check out my YouTube channel and sub if you like it? I just posted a tutorial for the Bach prelude I made using Synthesia and the MuseScore.org software, with more on the way. I also am putting out easy piano tutorials for beginners. Also, you can request classical pieces! Here is the link:
