Now, we are going to work on our fist sounds on the alto saxophone. For this, we will only be using the mouthpiece and the neck of the instrument. The reason for this is so that you do not have to worry about anything else but creating a beautiful first sound.
- Take a breath out of the corners of your mouth and then blow the air out. When blowing, think about saying “hoo” (don’t actually say it, just think like you are saying it.) Aim your air across the room to the wall. The air should be going across the tip of the mouthpiece, not down.
- The sound that you should hear should sound like this. (Concert Ab)
