ALICE's SAXOPHONE Lessons
March 5, 2023
Hi Alice - It was excellent getting started with you today! Your solos and all the band music sound great - you'll have a fun time performing those pieces at your upcoming concert.
A couple of things that we discussed in the lesson today:
1) Put the thin, clear mouthpiece patch on asap. This really gives you some valuable stability with the embouchure.
2) Experiment with a wee, tiny, ever-so-slight difference in the amount of mouthpiece you have in your mouth:
slightly too much = less control
slightly not enough = pinched, weak sound
LINK to The Great American Songbook - see if there are any songs you wish to play.
Technique: This could be a good one to get going-
Etude: Is there anything in the Hite book that you've been working on?
