Learning to play the saxophone has been on the mind of many people. A saxophone is a unique instrument that has different sounds depending on the shape of the body on the saxophone. The bigger the body is, the deeper the sound when played. The four parts to a saxophone are the mouthpiece, the neck, the body and the bell. These are the saxophones that are seen in orchestras and are used for people’s first saxophone songs.
There are many saxophones but the four beginner ones are Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone. The Alto and Tenor are the most commonly used. An Alto is great for beginners because it’s light enough for a child to use and it doesn’t take much air to create sound. A Tenor is bigger and has a deeper sound. It is heavier and requires more air to play.
