Should I switch? Clarinet to Tenor Saxophone
I am a sixth grader playing in seventh grade band (not because I'm that good, but I like to think about it that way!). I play clarinet, and am, in my opinion, very good, being a sixth grader and all. I can play all the notes, (except for one where my clarinet key is broken) including the highest E. I think I'm that good because I have been forced to cram in a year of learning into a few months. I love clarinet, don't get me wrong, but I love saxophone even more, even though I don't have one and don't know how to play. I am thinking of switching to tenor saxophone, and will ask my band director for some more advice, but I need some sources if he does think it is a good idea. Where should I get my saxophone, what brand, and what is the cheapest reliable brand I should get?
