Alto Sax Show:
Let's See What We Have Here

 

 

Saxophone is a fun instrument that is found in lots of styles of music, from concert band to jazz to rock to R&B.

The saxophone sound is made by a stream of air flowing across the tip of the reed, causing it to vibrate.   The frequency of the vibration is determined by the distance the air must travel before escaping from the saxophone.  Tone holes are carefully positioned on the body of the instrument to create the best intonation possible for each note.   As each key is pressed, its pad (soft leather disk under the key) stops the airflow through that tone hole.   As the distance the air must travel increases, the tone gets lower.


There are multiple sizes of saxophones including soprano, alto, 

tenor, and baritone. 

 Saxophonists almost always begin on the alto sax, but once you can play it you can play all the other saxophones too, as the playing mechanism is virtually the same.


Here's an example of a sax performance:


Here are some of our favorite saxophone performance videos and saxophone tips and tricks.
