    I would reccomend getting a private teacher. Or describe to someone your saxophone, Mouthpiece, Reed and ligature set-up. Cheers, The_§ax

      yeah, i'd have to agree with the_sax there. get a private teacher. there really isn't much else to say....the 'wah' sound could be that you are using too much air pressure; that your mouth is too loose, that you puff out your cheeks, etc. have a look at tips on playing techniques on the net somewhere, or get a teacher brace face
