The Mechanics of Playing the Saxophone The saxophone is played by blowing through the saxophone mouthpiecewhich has a cane reed attached using a ligature. The reed vibrates to make the sound. Your fingers placed on thekeys control the pitch for the most part. Your throat and how youplay also affect… the sound. The note that is being played on the saxophone is actuallyresonating in your voicebox. The air goes from the mouthpiece through the neck into thesaxophone body. If you wish to learn how to play the saxophone it is highlyrecommended you get a saxophone teacher or get a good startingbook. There is also beginner music to get you started available onlinesuch as on andrewscottmusic.com (MORE)
That's a pretty broad question. Are you talking about embechure, or fingerings, or how to read music. What do you need to know?
An alto sax can play from a low Bb to a high F/F# depending on whether or not you have the key, some don't
A single reed vibrates, sending the sound through the keys on the horn. Depending on the combination of keys depressed, the pitch changes, producing different notes.
It is too complex to write out on this page, but these are the basics. . You blow through a mouthpeice to create the sound. Your bottom lip should be curled in so that the outside of your lip presses against the reed . Lightly press your tongue to the tip of the reed to separate your air flow in …between notes . You press buttoms to close or open certain valves that correspond to a certain note. You can look up simple charts for the fingerings. (MORE)
It depends on the type of saxophone that you mean. However, most people in jazz either played alto, tenor, or baritone saxes.
The saxophone is a fairly easy instrument to play, most people learn to play it in a year or so. Remember, to be a good instrumentalist you have to practice. *edit* I apologise to however wrote the previous answer, but you're a little idiotic. The saying is that the saxophone is the easiest to le…arn and the hardest to master. Words of wisdom from the man above me :) I have been playing the sax for 6 years now, its tricky to get usd to, you have 26 keys, but don't let that number frighten you! Practice, Practice Practice and you will know how to play every note on that sax. If your just starting out, I recommend going to your local music shop, and talking with the clerk about some suggestions on books for beginners. Practice a little everyday, and the sax will seem like a cakewalk in no time. Hi, i am in my second year of playing the Alto i not only think its easy i think its a very fun instrument im going to start play bari sax too. im only in 8th grade and my teacher thinks im good enough to be in honors band. i know you would ssy its rare to see a girl on bari but its just as fun... ! I LOVE ALTO/BARI!! P.S. its super easy to play (MORE)

Mainly Jazz styles are played on the saxophone but other styles include military bands and a few orchestras.
To play "In the Jungle" on an Alto Saxophone, you only have to use four different keys: D#, E#, F#, and G# (you also use one A# at the end). They go in this order: D#, E#, F#, E#, F#, G#, F#, E#, D#, E#, F#, E#, D#, F#, E#, A# This might be easier g a b a b c b a g a b g low d b a high d b a b …high d c b a g a b g low d b a (MORE)
He never played a saxophone in an episode before so I have to say no.
Pretty much as it is today. The fingering poition have been changed a bit, but basically it is the same.
\n. \nWell, Bill Clinton played the saxophone at his inaugural ball back in 1994, well i am not exactly sure if it was at his inaugural ball so it might not be true about that, but i am pretty sure Bill Clinton played the sax, i hope i helped.
The saxophone is a reed instrument. This means that a reed (a thin piece of wood) is strapped to the mouthpiece. When a player puts his/her mouth to the instrument and expels air out of their mouth, the reed vibrates, thus causing the sound you hear. The keys are pressed down to create different ton…es. When a hole is covered up, the first place for air to escape is farther down the instrument, making the tone lower in pitch. (MORE)
I play clarinet, saxophone, and flute, and I would definitely say that saxophone is the easiest of all three. It takes a good amount of air and muscle support around the mouth to get a good sound, but in the end it is the most free-blowing woodwind and requires the least amount of control to at leas…t get a decent sound. (MORE)
The saxophone is not a normal instrument in an orchestra. It will only be used in one if the composer or the director wants to have a specific sound or feel to the piece. When it is used, it is part of the woodwind section.
finger an A with the left hand (the first two keys your fingers are on), and add the last of the three rectangular keys with the palm of your right hand, located near the hook. Fingering diagrams are extremely helpful in these situations. a different guy, WRONG! you use both of your pointer finger…s. (MORE)
Well you should start off just blowing in the mouthpiceese when you get a smooth sound on there then move on and work on some notes.. Do not put to much mouthpicese in or it will sound bad. do not use to much air or it will be blasty. and if it is way bad then take it in to a shop
yes, yes you can. to play the sax you dont use your teeth you use your lips. i play the sax (alto) and its not hard at all. im acually really good. so the awnser to your question is yes. yes, yes you can. to play the sax you dont use your teeth you use your lips. i play the sax (alto) and its… not hard at all. im acually really good. so the awnser to your question is yes (MORE)
well it depends on what school you go to schools of the same district usually use the same instruments but other than that it just depends on what school.
Of all the woodwinds, It is the easiest instrument to learn. Pleaseget a private teacher and take lessons.
A 'G' on the Saxophone is played with 3 fingers (ring finger, middle finger, and pointer finger) on your left hand pressed down on the 3 notes that you regularly use. (of coarse the saying "skip one hit one skip one hit one hit one" appals to this as it most the time dose)
You can play an instrument you choose, but be careful, see the fact is that if your used to playing a flute, and then switch to an instrument like a sax, then a clarinet, then a trumpet, you can mess up your mouth or whats called your embechure, think of it this way, each instrument requires its own… personal position on how your mouth should be shaped, how much air you need, and how much force you need to use to play it, you take an instrument like the flute, which is essentially a long tube, then switch to a saxophone which is a curved instrument, which will require more air and more power. Just be careful, you don't want to mess with your mouth too much, which can happen easily from switching from instrument to instrument. (MORE)
Many songs in jazz categories are played on the saxophone but there are not many modern and contemporary songs. The most recognizable one perhaps is the theme from the Pink Panther played in the key of B on the Eb alto saxophone.
They can be played in Jazz Bands, Full Orchestras, Concert Bands, Pit Orchestras (for a Musical), Marching Bands, etc. But they aren't very common in Full Orchestras because of its sound.
There are actually several different songs in the MissionImpossible movies. You should be able to pull up the sheet musicfrom a good deal of music websites.
You can find a sax in different places and different styles. In America youll find it everywhere used for blues, jazz, rock, funk, R&B, soul and others. While in Europe youll find it in much more specific styles. Im not sure its what you mean but its what I know.
You have to have the correct aumbochere ,blow with an open throat , know what the fingerings are, and have press down on buttons , and play the correct buttons .
An (A) Flat on an Alto Saxophone is the same as a (G) Sharp, so the three top keys down as if you were going to play a (G), PLUS the key on the left side of the sax, the key where typically you would place your pinkie. If you need more clarification, look on the internet for an Alto Sax fingering ch…art. (MORE)
On any instrument, an A major scale has three sharps: F#, C#, and G#. The scale is A, B, C#, D, E, F#, G#, A. If you are asking about a concert A major scale, you'd play a B scale on any Bb instrument, like a tenor sax. Now you've got 5 sharps, and the scale is played B, C#, D#, E, F#, G#, A#, B.… It's a knuckle buster. (MORE)
the saxophone can play in a variety of ensembles, jazz, classical, be-bop, big band, occasionally rock, and regiment, there are others as well
Well what you have to do is just buy a book or if you go to a good school they will do saxophone lessons. They cost about Â£13,000 and also the cheapest is probably Â£300 which are still quite good but not as good. I have an alto sax which is smaller than a tennor and I really find the other one… funny it looks like a clarinet! ask more if you like. By Jess Bendell x (MORE)
A low E is played with all three fingers on the left hand and fingers 1 and 2 on the right hand. To go an octave higher, play that fingering with the octave key. If you want an octave above that it's the first 2 palm keys (the ones closest to you) in the left hand and the top palm key in the right h…and and the octave key. (MORE)
The following comes from someone who plays it:. No. . I think the fingerings are pretty simple (your hands are right over top of the keys you're supposed to push) and all you have to do is blow (no fingers is actually a note). . Also, the fingerings work in a pattern, which goes like this, over a…nd over again: . pointer, middle, + ring -> . pointer + middle ->. pointer ->. middle ->. none. Saxes are generally not too heavy, though it depends on the type, and some hang from your neck while some rest on the floor.. Also, if you're bad at doing multiple things at the same time . (like on the piano, where your right hand's playing one tune while your left's playing another and your feet are pumping the pedal and sometimes you're singing). the saxophone is good because all your body's working on one song. If you are good at doing lots of stuff simultaneously, you'll think it's super simple.. Those are the basics. Though it does have its drawbacks, it is generally quite easy to play -- and once you know the fingerings for one type of saxophone, you know how to play ALL saxophones (which is cool). (MORE)
It's not hard, but I suggest playing a tenor saxophone first. ~~~ DO NOT PLAY TENOR SAX FIRST! It is in a different key! BARI SAX IS REALLY EASY FOR YOU TO PLAY! But if you want to play another saxophone first, if any, you should play Alto! Because they are both in the key of E-flat! Tenor sax… is in the key of B-flat! (MORE)

octave key, key pressed with the base of your left pointer, the one below that, and the bottom of the three keys close together on the side on your right hand side.
No. He sings, plays the guitar, the drums, the piano, and the trumpet , but not a saxophone.
Many saxophone players can easily switch between different types ofsaxophones (soprano, alto, tenor, bari, etc.) because the notes arethe same for each saxophone.
A saxophone is an musical instrument that is played by blowing through a mouthpiece (usually made of plastic or hard rubber, some are made of metal for a different sound) that has a thin piece of wood on it called a reed. When you blow air, the reed vibrates and produces a sound. The thickness of th…e reed varies. The thicker the reed it, the harder it is to make it vibrate. A saxophone has many keys that you press down or lift up do produce different notes. This is how it makes sound, but there really is no way to tell you how to PLAY a saxophone and make music, for it takes lots of practice and there are many techniques and skills that are helpful/required. (MORE)
The highest possible note on the saxophone is the high F#, which can be only played with the high F# key on only step-up saxes. However, this is not typically played. There are no written notes higher than this, but you can create your own "controlled squeaks" on your sax. (Which isn't the most plea…sant sound in the world.) (MORE)

You can play a lot with a saxophone. Its well known for being used in jazz and blues. Its also used a lot in rock (usually from the 70's or 80's). It can also play in concert bands. It can play pretty much anything well, even classical. In the professional world, it is used pretty much everywhere ex…cept orchestras. I don't know why, but saxophones are never used in orchestras.

Start out slow and soft, then get louder and faster. Be sure to sway back and forth, and pump your fist when your right hand is free.
The notes from lowest to highest on Alto Saxophone are, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F. Hope this helped I got these from my band book ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS 2000.
As a saxophone player myself, I can tell you that you don't need much to play the instrument. I suggest: . A neck strap . Reeds (Around #2 reeds if you are a beginner) . An saxophone (obviously) . A mouthpiece . A saxophone cleaner (basically a wipe on a string) That's about it. Of course …music would come in handy, but if you're just practicing getting the notes out then there's no need yet. Good luck! (MORE)
It is important for a sax player to be able to play all of thevarious saxes (soprano, alto, tenor, bari, etc.) so all are writtenin the same clef, and use the same fingering for the same writtennote even though the different instruments sound different pitches. I suspect that the reason the treble …clef was chosen was that, whenthe sax was first introduced, players of other woodwind instrumentswere the people that would play the new saxophone, and theiroriginal instrument, be it clarinet, flute, or oboe, were notatedin treble clef.

On the rare occasion that orchestral music even uses a saxophone,it often gets a solo at some point. A lot of orchestral music waswritten before the saxophone was invented, and as such the standardinstrumentation was pretty well defined by the time it came intouse.
