Many classical composers featured alto sax music in their compositions. While the tenor sax may seem to be the standard for jazz bands, many of them also use the alto sax for many numbers. The alto saxophone is smaller and has a higher pitch that some saxophonists enjoy. There are songs that have been written to be performed by a quartet of saxophones, too. Along with the alto saxophone, a soprano saxophone, a tenor saxophone and a baritone sax harmonize for a unique sound.
There are websites where you can instantly download and print alto saxophone music. The numbers are often rated according to how difficult they are to play, so you can choose a piece that will fit your playing expertise. All kinds of music are needed for saxophonists, since even a beginner sometimes needs to play in a recital or contest.
For this reason, if you do not know how to transpose the music yourself, you'll want to buy special alto sax music for any piece you want to play with other instruments. Some hymnals and other music books are available transposed for different instruments.
