Hi, all–great to have you back, and I’m excited to see what we can accomplish in the new year!
David: It may not be very exciting but spend the week learning to hold the sax in a balanced position. Many other good things will result. Continue with scales every day; play the marked section of Lacour #9, but look ahead if you like. Work on the folk song, paying attention to steady, consistent attacks.
Aiden: Remember to breathe low into your body, not to raise your chest. Practice starting with a full breath but starting the note lightly, as in the lesson. Work on “Molly Malone” and polish up the Minuet.
–See you both next week in our permanent room!
