  1. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    For the past seven years, I have only been studying Classical music mainly on Alto. I recently completed my rounds of College auditions, where I auditioned with the Glazunov Saxophone Concerto if that gives you an idea of my playing ability. I decided to do a 180 and study jazz at the College of...
  2. Eb Alto
    Hey my name is Hayden, i'm in high school and i just recently moved up to the 1st jazz band. I'm on track to be lead alto next year, but my tone is still leaning towards the classical sound; it's clear and focused and doesn't really sound appropriate leading a jazz group. I was wondering if...

  7. Rampone & Cazzani
    I am a sophomore high school student and am in the steps of purchasing my own, new, professional alto saxophone. I have spent hours on countless websites (i.e. WWBW, this website :bluewink2: , saxforte.com, etc) and I am becoming increasingly interested in the Rampone and Cazzani altos...
