    Discussion re BOTM/SOTM and beginners

    I think what you have written above is spot on, I think i have suggested this before but, Can this same thread be run simultaneously with the beginners recordings thread. Some members seem to be on the brink of posting something but just don't quite make it

    Discussion re BOTM/SOTM and beginners

    Beginner Intonation

    As a re-beginner I am starting out (4 or 5 days now) focusing on building my embouchure by playing long tones while trying for constant loudness and intonation. So far intonation is a real challenge. (duh) My first question is: Is repeatable/intentional and steady intonation (not drifting in...

    Welcome to the café, Miles! If you found this place, you'll also find there is an almost infinite amount of good instructional beginner videos out there. I went through quite a few last year.

    Discussion re BOTM/SOTM and beginners

    So they are posting in the BOTM and a SOTM beginners thread. The idea was it ran at the same time as the main one but the beginners would be invisible to those not signed in.

    M/Pieces - Ligs Mouthpiece recommendations:

    Start safe. High baffled mouthpieces aren't exactly for beginners... Same for wide opening. My surfer's days are way back, but would you recommend starting on a short board? A teenager perhaps, but a 'mature' beginner... Not so sure! Same sorta thing.

    ...page in the Café are links to Taming the Saxophone.
