Learning to play soprano saxophone

by Jerome
(Chattanooga)

What book do you recommend to learn to play the soprano saxaphone. i already play alto sax. I bought a curve-bell soprano saxaphone. All the sax books present is music theory but no book tells you how to blow, how hard to "bite" for a high note. How to move fingers or use the palm to hit d, d# and f notes

... where do I go?

How to pay the Soprano Sax
by: Victor Knight

Hello, how are you? My name is Victor and I saw your post. All Saxophones work the same. You say that you have been playing the Alto, so you really don't have a problem. What you need to do is get the Universal Method for Saxophone. This book will teach you how to play any Sax. If you can not read music, this book will teach you that as well. The book is by Paul DeVille. I don't know where you can get this book. But I'm sure you can find it on the internet or at a music store. I my self, play a curved Soprano and love it. I use to own a straight Soprano and found that it was not for me, so I switched and I have been so very happy. If you have any more questions, I would love to help you out. You can reach me at zbaldguy@yahoo.com. Good luck and keep on jamming.
