  1. Classical Saxophone
    I have watched this YouTube video several times and it never gets old. This is quite simple the best performance of Pequeña Czarda I have been able to find. Maria Gmyrek is a joy to listen to. I love both jazz and classical saxophone, but I think this performance tilts my admiration toward...
  2. High School and College
    Hi, I'm currently attending a high school in Texas and I will be majoring in saxophone performance. I've been looking at universities to study at, and I've really been considering Indiana University (Otis Murphy) , Michigan (Tim McAllister) and Eastman (Chien-Kwan-Lin) I also recently made it to...

    The 6M was designed for big band and jazz play. It's great! But how does yours sound for concert/symphonic band or occasional classical-like solos? I've tried multiple mpc, reed and lig. setup combinations, even a "double embouchure", and don't get close enough to my perceived "liquid gold"...
  4. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    So I'm in the market for a new sax, and I'm looking at the Yamaha YAS 62III. There is a silver model (which i really like) and a normal gold lacquer version. I was wondering what the difference in sound would be vs the two. I'm a classical player too.
  5. Alto mpc
    Hey All! I was wondering what mouthpiece you'd all recommend for a university aged classical saxophone player. I see a lot of posts on jazz mouthpieces, but I enjoy the classical rascher school sound (much darker than some French school players). I currently play on an S80 C* with my Yamaha...
  6. Classical Saxophone
    Does anyone here do online lessons? Be they over Skype or something similar; I would also like to know the cost per lesson/hour/etc., your credentials (ie. What makes you a qualified individual to give lessons, what past experience do you have?) and availability. Most of the interest is from...
  7. Classical Saxophone
    I have some really important auditions coming up in March, and I need two contrasting classical alto pieces(or a single if it "demonstrates my ability" pretty well), but the thing is, I'm not allowed any accompaniment. And I've looked at the standards, but almost everything really needs...

  9. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    Hey, I was just wondering if anyone could help me with an issue I've been having with switching between mouthpieces and styles. First of all, I play a Cannonball Vitage Reborn alto. For classical I use a Selmer C* with Vandoren 3.5 traditional and for jazz I use a Dukoff D6 with 3.5 ZZ's. I...
