Re: help a perspective new sax player
I would advise you to start on an alto. The alto is usually the one to start with. The soprano is more difficult as far as intonation goes. The tenor is easier than both. The alto will give you a firm foundation for emboucher, and as the size of the keys are between the tenor and alto, will give you a better feel when you decide to get a soprano. Of course, the soprano and tenor is pitched at Bb, and the alto at Eb. I would not forget it altogether unless you really don't want to pursue music. However, I'm one to encourage anybody and everybody to play music. Music is the best!
