So like most I started on alto but bought a tenor in8th grade. Of course through college I took classical lessons on alto but always gigged on tenor. It’s been 30 years since those days and I’ve been gigging on tenor and sometimes soprano but still leave the alto at home. I use alto as a teaching instrument ( middle school). Recently I was asked to sub as lead alto in the teacher big band so I’ve been spending quality time with the alto. It’s just so high. Just not me but it’s a great opportunity to work it out.
