The Simpsons theme, Baker Street and Careless Whisper are not the only perks of being a saxophonist! like the clarinet, players learn that the flexibility and unique sound of this metal made woodwind instrument allows an instrumentalist to not only play the works of George Gershwin and Pierre Lantier but also able to carry the prolific tunes by Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins.
The saxophone was invented by Antoine-Joseph (Adolph) Sax who is one of a few instrument inventors to only be responsible for a single instrument finally patented in 1846. Sax did have a hand in the design of another instrument however, this was in its earliest form as the ‘contra bass clarinet’ of the time. Hector Berlioz was a fan of this new upcoming horn that allowed the flexibility and technical ability of a woodwind instrument and the projection and dynamic range of solo brass instruments.
Short answer. Yes. However, even with the current Global Pandemic, we are able to keep our students safe with shield protectors/ face shields/ and masks in use constantly while in the academy. With the addition of hand sanitizer throughout the building.
