I was just wondering what the saxophone mouthpiece's job is. I have been searching the internet for an hour now and haven't found the answer yet. I really need it urgently for my homework, so if you get me the answer ASAP that will be great!
Thanks.

Purpose of saxophone mouthpiece.
by: Anonymous

The core purpose of the mouthpiece is to allow a thin wooden sliver, known as a reed, to vibrate in a controlled way. The mouthpiece's job is to shape the sound of the saxophone. Each different mouthpiece will give you a different sound.

Saxophone mouthpiece - function
by: Anonymous

Its function is to provide an opening through which air enters the instrument and one end of an air chamber to be set into vibration by the interaction between the air stream and the reed.
