Cafe Saxophone - the ideal online establishment for saxophone players to meet, have a chat, a debate, listen to and critique each others' playing, share ideas or just find stuff out. Players (old & new), teachers, students, saxophone manufacturers, retailers - all are welcome to contribute.
You don't need to be an expert, just have a love of the saxophone and saxophone players. Maybe you are a teacher with some unique or exciting method or a you could be a world class touring and recording artist. Maybe you are a beginner with some frustrating experiences and solutions to share. Whatever, there is something here for you to teach and/or learn.
Taming the Saxophone is our other main saxophone site where you can find loads of information about saxophones, saxophone playing (and players), accessories, mouthpieces, tone exercises, fingering exercises, jazz, rock & blues improvisation and lots more.
One of my tricks was to have the bass clarinet play his/her part alone for the section I wanted to have better balance. Then I instructed the rest of the group to play so that they could hear that part when they were all playing.
