It's possible to find free alto saxophone music that you can download from the internet, but more likely than not, there will be some small cost. If you are looking for old-fashioned sheet music from the 30's and 40's, you can do a web search for "sheet music archives." There are some of these old pieces which include a part for an alto sax. The music will probably be in the form of a PDF file, and you will likely get a copy of the original decorative cover as a bonus.
There are also websites that provide free downloads if you pay an annual fee. This fee can be around $25 to $40. Since websites change so often, this article won't give a URL, but you can find these services by doing a web search of "downloadable sheet music" or "sheet music downloads." The individual site will then probably offer you a choice of instruments in addition to the alto sax.
You may have the option of buying the downloads for a few dollars each if you don't want to join the site. In fact, if you read through the offerings, you may find a few that can be downloaded free even if you are not a member. For instance, one site offers tunes such as Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer" and a few Christmas carols for free. Older music tends to be available more often as free sheet music because many of the pieces are in the public domain and do not have stringent copyrights attached to them.
There are several sites that offer free printable downloads of musical score paper, in case you should want to write out your own free alto saxophone music. The paper can be pre-printed with the treble clefs already there, and you can even have an extra score for a piano accompaniment.
