Hey,
I was wondering whether anyone has any suggestions on classical music to play on the alto saxophone, not too hard as i am a beginner ;) If any of you have pdfs or something that would really help, otherwise, book recommendations are great too! :D

Most beginner's books will be compilations of one sort or another. There are various books such as Pieces Celebres pour Saxophone Alto en MIb et Piano ed. Marcel Mule (Alphonse Leduc, Paris) which is mostly Baroque. There are others about - simplest is to find a music shop and go browsing. For example, ABRSM produce a number such as this - not sure how difficult it is though.

I'm sure some of the teachers on here will pop up with a few better suggestions.

Look at the Trinity Guildhall exam syllabus - the pieces selected for that are graded and many of them are really good.

You might get The Art of Saxophone Playing by Larry Teal. It is an excellent resource for any saxophonist and it has a list of selected and graded classical literature at the back.
