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!
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.
How many of you are marching tomorrow for Memorial Day? I don’t expect many responses cus it’s really late here, but I’d like to know. What are you playing? Our marching band *was* going to play National Emblem as we marched, but we cancelled the parade because of rain, so we’re just playing the National Anthem and Stars and Stripes Forever at the ceremony.
(Also, I apologize if my activity is annoying to any of you. I’m excited to talk with people who are as enthusiastic about music and saxophones as I am.)
For those who don’t know Polyrhythm is the simultaneous use of two or more conflicting rhythms e.g. triplets at the same time as duplets
For me I can’t wait to be done my piano sonata but I also am excited to compose a concerto for piano and orchestra!
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)
Hello! I am Mark Catahan and I arranged a piece from Francisco Tarrega which was Gran Vals. It is originally a guitar piece but I transcribed and arranged it for a string quartet. With my arrangement, something is bugging me about how I arranged it and I do not know what it is. So I kinda need some help on figuring out what needs to improve in the arrangement. Thanks!

I was thinking of getting a new mouthpeice for bari sax and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I really want a jazz mouthpeice, preferbly metal.
I have problems to change the tuning of the strings in tab. This happens in version 3.0. The program shuts down when I do this. It does not happen in version 2.0. what can i do to solve it. Thank you
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.
Dear musescorers, if you have compositions that would be of interest to double bass players (including solo or chamber music), please consider joining the Contrabass players group and adding it there! For 7 years, it's been the only group specifically about the double bass/contrabass. You are also welcome to post a discussion. https://musescore.com/groups/contrabass-players
I am in need of an opinion on a piece I started written in the mindset for the youth players. The piece I am writing is called "A Brandenburg Waltz". Using the notes to the Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 and putting them into a waltz.
Any changes will certainly be pleased.
