Shaky

It probably goes wa-wa-wa when you get there...could be a leak but more likely is too much bite/too tight an embouchure.

Soprano wa wa

Get a leak light down the bore and check for leaks...Soprano's are very susceptible to leaks...very small ones can cause anguish. The earlier comment about too tight an embouchure is a possibility. Try really relaxing on the mp...don't worry about tone and see if it helps.
Good luck

Shaky sound

Maybe the problem is the emboucher. I suggest you practice on long tone in the mid and lower range thightening and relaxing your mouth. Do it during one week. If the problem persist you have to check if the sax has any leak with a good lutier.
