Notes On An Alto Sax – C.
How To Play C on the Alto Saxophone.
Hello and welcome to this Notes On Alto Saxophone series.
In this lesson for Beginner Saxophone Notes, we are going to learn how to play the note C on our alto saxophone.
There are actually THREE C notes on alto saxophone.
1 To play a middle C, using your LEFT hand, place your middle finger on the middle main key of your saxophone.
2 To play a high C, simply add the Register key (sometimes known as the Octave key) using your LEFT thumb at the back of your saxophone.
3 To play a low C, add all three main fingers on your left hand, plus all three fingers on your right hand. Add your right pinky finger on the bottom key as well.
And there you have it – C is for cookie, and that’s good enough for me !
