  1. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    How cool is this!? My longtime student Simon Hwang recently wrote a song titled "Spring." I asked him to sit in on a gig I had with my buddy's band and also bring his new composition for us to play. Here is the debut performance of that piece - let me know what you think!

  3. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    The age old debate- Student vs Professional model saxophones. I've seen lots of discussion of this, but here's a video with some information on each instrument (plus playing examples on each!). Are the pro saxes worth their asking price? Is the difference between them justified? Watch this video...

    Hey guys! New poster here. :hello2: I just finished up my freshman year of high school, currently my fourth year of playing alto sax in a "concert" setting, as well as marching. I also produce some music at home where I do classical and jazz. Where I'm going with this is I'm not satisfied...
  5. High School and College
    I will be attending UNT for jazz performance in the fall and thought it'd be cool to connect with some current students! I'd love to learn a bit about what to expect when I get there and maybe even grab a few tips on how to make the most out of the program. Thanks guys!
  6. Clarinet
    Hi All - I hope you'll be patient with me, as I'm sure this type of questions comes up frequently. I've searched the board and still need some advice. I've played a Selmer Signet Soloist for 25 years with a Vandoren B45 mouthpiece just as a hobby. My son (aged 10) wants to start playing the...
  7. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello! I'm a student, still in high school, and have recently run into a problem on my sax's neck: When I took my mouthpiece off the neck last night the cork cracked. I had an audition today so I was forced to put a mouthpiece back on, and when I removed it afterward, the back quarter of the...
  8. High School and College
    I am a junior performance major looking for graduate programs. I can find performance masters degrees for days but I am having some issues finding pedagogy masters degrees. Does anybody have a link and/or a particular school that they can share with me? Thank you all, Dereck
  9. Tenor mpc
    I am a high school student doing a lot of tenor jazz soloing and big band work, and am looking for a good metal mouthpiece to move up into that more professional sound, but I don't want to break the bank. What are your suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  10. Clarinet
    I'm only getting into teaching sax now. What good method books and solo books are there for beginners and intermediate players? I have a really great student (tenor sax) who needs a complete method (scales, solos, overtone studies, etudes, and sight reading). He wants to be a jazzer, but I...

    About a year ago I went to New York and listened to this amazing saxophone player who is all over Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o56zTAHu7o4 I really liked his playing and when I found out he made custom saxophones I really wanted to buy one. Now that I have the money I was thinking of...
  15. Bb Soprano
    Greetings SOTW! I have a 4th grade student who's adamant about playing saxophone. She's too small for alto so I thought a curved soprano would be a good fit. Is there an intermediate/beginner horn someone could recommend that wouldn't need constant adjusting and plays somewhat in tune (I know...
  16. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I recently bought an Orpheo Student Saxophone form Music Discount Warehouse at their retail store. I like the tone and sound of it a lot and even had a friend of mine, Scott Kurtzweil of Niles give it a play and he thought it was a very nice Saxophone. Not the surprise finding is that it...

  20. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    My child is a very good clarinet player, and wants to double on alto. What can I get for $700-800 that would be of good quality. On ebay I see used Yamaha-23, and also used Antiguas. Are these the best in this price range? Or what would you recommend, and also what mouthpiece? We have an old...
