Novice level players will have some experience playing the saxophone, be familiar with note names and fingerings from low C to high C, and have an understanding of how music notation and rhythmic notation works. We will work on fluency on the entire range of the instrument from low Bb to high F
Intermediate players will be able to play from low Bb to high F/F#, be comfortable with scales in most keys, and be able to play chromatic and major scales. We will work on fluency and familiarity with the dominant and minor scales, and major/dominant/minor chords, as well as rhythm, sight reading, and some improvising.
Advanced Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:30am PDT
Advanced level players will have command of the full range of their instrument, be familiar with full range major, dominant, and minor scales and chords, be familiar with compound time signatures, complex rhythms, and all key signatures. Range will be rigorous in this section, and we will work to strengthen and extend the altissimo register. We will work to strengthen tone, aural skills, and fluidity in reading through chord changes.
