In this day of school budget cuts, many general music and vocal teachers are given extra duty as band director. Tips, advice, and techniques are wanted by these music professionals.

Some instruments are into a world all themselves. A few people agree this is the same for the saxophone. I don't agree. It must belong to a larger world than that. And it is becoming more so all the time!
