Tips for Playing the Saxophone
1. The saxophone should hang on the strap to your right hand side, not in the middle.
2. Support the sax with your right thumb, positioning it slightly away from your body. Whilst sitting, the saxophone should rest against your right leg, about half way between your knee and hip. Your Saxophone tutors Edinburgh can demonstrate this.
3. Keep your body straight, head erect and always bring the mouthpiece to the lips. When the strap is adjusted correctly, the mouthpiece should line up directly to your lips while sitting up straight.
4. Always position your fingers “on the pearls” (the white pearl inlay on keys). The left hand should be on top, the right hand on the bottom. Left thumb goes on the thumb rest under the octave key. Right thumb hooks under Thumb hook. Again, your Saxophone tutor Edinburgh can demonstrate this.
5. Place the mouthpiece in your mouth and anchor you teeth and head weight down on the mouthpiece. The top teeth and bottom lip will be approx. 2cm in from the tip of the reeds.
Your Saxophone lessons Edinburgh will begin with some basic playing guidance -
a. Never remove the top lip or teeth from the mouthpiece.
b. Drop your jaw to take a breath.
c. The resting position for the tongue is on the reed, ready to be released.
d. The position of the hand forms a c-shape.
e. Place the tips of your fingers in the centre of the pearls.
