According to Larry Teal, the best method of learning to play the saxophone is to study with a competent teacher. Teal's studies were mostly of instruments other than the saxophone, but as a student at a Chautauqua summer session, he came under the influence of Georges Barrère, the eminent French flutist. He played bass clarinet with the Detroit Symphony, but he continued to be absorbed by the saxophone. As a result of his acquired expertise and growing reputation, he was appointed to a full-time faculty position as a saxophone teacher by the University of Michigan -- the first ever to receive such an appointment from a major university. During his 21-year tenure, he attracted students from all over, thus exerting an ever widening influence on saxophone teaching and performing.

Saxophonist Charlie Parker (1920-1955) was one of the most innovative and influential jazz musicians of any era. As one of the architects of modern jazz (often called "bebop"), Charlie Parker has had a profound effect on American music. His music reached such a high level of melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic sophistication that saxophonists and other instrumentalists continue to study it as both a technical challenge and an aesthetic inspiration. This revised edition of Charlie Parker: His Music and Life has been revised throughout to account for new Charlie Parker scholarship and previously unknown Parker recordings that have emerged since the book's initial publication. The volume opens by considering current research on Parker's biography, laying out some of the contradictory accounts of his life, and setting the chronology straight where possible. It then focuses on Parker's music, tracing his artistic evolution and major achievements as a jazz improviser. The musical discussions and transcribed musical examples include timecodes for easy location in recordings--a unique feature to this book.

Teachers and students of the saxophone will become better instructors and players as a result of following A Practical Guide for Teaching the Saxophone to Beginners. A storehouse of valuable information, gleaned from professional study and over thirty years of teaching, this book has been endorsed by one of the world’s foremost teachers and performers of the saxophone, Dr. Frederick L. Hemke. Written with future teachers in mind, this book describes the many facets of the technical side of playing the saxophone, guiding teachers and players of the saxophone to good tone quality and proper technique so that the beautiful capacity of this instrument can be shared with everyone who listens. Intended for students in a university woodwind techniques class, band directors, and saxophonists or musicians from any background who find themselves teaching the saxophone, this guide should also be helpful to anyone who plays the saxophone, at any level or in any style; the points addressed are universal to the instrument. Covering areas such as, proper embouchure formation and how to approach tonguing to achieve various articulations, the book also discusses such topics as reed selection and adjustment, understanding and controlling the innate tuning tendencies and mastering the upper and lower registers. It also covers common problems arising with the mechanism and how to perform repairs, as well as proper routine care and maintenance. The book details dealing with the saxophone in a school band setting, as well as doing remedial work with experienced players and teaching the ever-growing adult student market. A Practical Guide for Teaching the Saxophone to Beginners is comprehensive in addressing all major areas of learning the saxophone. Written by someone with such high music credentials and experience, and appropriate for both saxophone students and teachers, it should be a required reading for any woodwind techniques class in a university music program, and in the library of every student of the saxophone.

Daily Warm-Up Exercises for Jazz Ensemble was written as a series of studies to aid the jazz group in performance. It is published in two volumes, Volume I for the young or beginning ensemble, and Volume II for the more advanced group. All musical groups need a short period of time during the beginning of a rehearsal to reacquaint their body functions with the needs of making music. Even though individuals warm-up by themselves in preparation for performance, the group as a whole needs to experience basic musical qualities---blend, balance, precision, intonation---together to ensure good ensemble performance. Hopefully, this series will provide the jazz ensemble with materials organized in a logical manner to accomplish these goals.

Hyper specializing in Saxophone Using Acoustical Insight and Deep Listening Skills

This book presents a novel method of grafting musical wind instruments by exchanging an instrument’s standard mouthpiece with different tone generators. Using the concrete example of the soprano saxophone, it describes how, with six other tone generators, including brass, double reed, and free reed mechanisms, the saxophone can be extended to nearly every wind instrument category in the von Hornbostel and Sachs classification system. The book demonstrates how it is possible to play these instrument variations with high proficiency, and describes the method of hyper-specialization, including acoustical insights, conservatory training methods and the underlying philosophy. The latter is based on the cultural traditions of the different wind instrument prototypes and the Deep Listening philosophy of cultivating internal diversity, and approach that leads to a new level of wind instrument virtuosity that offers great timbral variety combined with the flexibility of a regular acoustic wind instrument.
