Im having a bit of a problem...I need to have A saxophone Etude ready for monday. I dont have any etudes...so I was wondering if anyone here had any scans, or names of books to purchase with etudes for saxophone. It has to "demonstrate my technical ability" as my director says. Also, I have to know all my major scales, which I do, I just don't know the transpositions from concert pitch. Does anyone know any tricks for figuring out the transpositions on alto? Thanks!

Alto saxophone transposes up a major 6th from concert pitch (or, if you're just picking a pitch out to start a scale on, moving down the minor 3rd might be easier).

For example: Bb concert = G on saxophone. F = D, Eb = C, C = A, etc.
