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 ^~^

I am looking for some translation for alto sax of following songs:
Conan the Barbarian - Recovery
Stan Bush - On my own alone
Jerry Goldsmith / Rambo - It’s a long road
Or any songs of basil poledouris.
If any can help out that would be great !
A lot of cool sax players out there, but what is your favorite one and why? What is the particular thing that makes it special for you? what distinguishes him from others?
I have auditions coming up and I need a few songs that I can look into to start playing. Sophisticated Lady is the current piece I'm playing, but I'm curious as to what other classic jazz songs feature the bari sax.
Hey guys there this song I’ve been listening to and I love it and I was wondering if anyone can make it for a string quartet (2 violins, one viola, and one cello) it’s called baba yetu.
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
I was wondering what the most common saxophone variant is, whether is be soprano, alto, tenor, or baritone. Can you tell me your type.

Any advice? I'd like to know more about my transitions, and maybe how to get a better soundfont for the tremolos. Thanks!
Second movement of The raven suite..
I have searched everywhere in musescore, but I can only find giant steps and Mr. PC, but the solo isn't in pieces. Does anyone know books or other media to use?
I know I haven't been active in this group, but let's change that! We should add like a TON of scores to help boost morale, or ask people to join to keep things fresh! I'd hate to see this group get lost in time...
