It’s time for Eliezer to give you a saxophone tip:
1. Taking care of your instrument is key to saxophone success .
As a saxophone player- the way we treat the instrument will reflect in our playing. We want nice long sounds at first. We may have to play loud for a period of time. Breath support is needed for proper growth and the embrochure ( the point where our mouth contacts the instrument on the mouthpiece) must be developed. -
Therefore taking care of the reed, mouthpiece, ligature for the mouthpiece and reed, as well as proper neck care and taking care of the keys, buttons, springs, pads, and other elements of the instrument’s body , are all essential.
