Saxophone Lessons Q and A 4 with Matthew

Hi Saxophone Nation,

It’s been a while (too long) since I published a Saxophone Lessons Question and Answer session.

So thanks to one of our AWESOME Members – Ken – for pushing me to get it together and do one !!!


Ken has asked some great questions:

Q1. What is that top key for ?

Q2. What makes the low notes sound like a fog horn ?

Q3. Often I get a “breathiness” sound rather than a clear note. Is this just caused by not creating a tight seal w ones lips?

Q4. When to use the register key ?


If you have ANY saxophone questions – vaguely saxophone related or not – then please ask me in the forums inside the Members Area here at – or Contact me – or ask in the comments on our Youtube channel, or our Facebook Page – and I will do my best to answer them for you 🙂
