A systematic approach to mastering the entire range of the saxophone through major and minor scales and arpeggios. Rather than focusing on the middle of the saxophone range and a limited number of key signatures, the goal here is to teach students to read in all key signatures - including enharmonic keys - and to play comfortably in the extreme registers. This book offers exercises that focus in these specific problem areas. It begins with one-octave scales and arpeggios followed by preparatory studies for the full range. This preparation is achieved through exercises extending upward and downward from the middle range with scales finally played full range. Each scale or arpeggio exercise is stated in order of increasing sharps or flats, ultimately addressing all major and minor keys. Report forms for each exercise and key (including metronome markings) are provided so students can evaluate their progress.
