New Saxophone Resources and an Endorsement

The blog really hasn't gotten enough attention in the past months, but that's what happens when you're a DMA candidate I guess. Here are a few of the things that I have been wanting share. In the near future look forward to an review on something called the Timbre Trainer, a very unique piece of instrument related equipment.

A Couple of Music Related Sites
  • A new blog has surfaced, The Diligent Musician, which already has quite a lot of good information up including a healthy amount of saxophone-centric material. I got a sneak peak at the first article and it's on a great Kenny Garrett solo, so go check it out already.
  • I recently got wind of a site,, which is completely dedicated to letting users sale their instruments, a cool concept. Saxophones can be found/sold here.

Ben Wendel, one of my favorite saxophonists, has endorsed A Complete Approach to Overtones. He says,
"The overtone series has been one of the most important practice routines in my saxophone development. It has helped open up my sound, altissimo range and overall resonance. Ben Britton's book is a clear and well presented exploration of this world and will equally benefit beginning to advanced players."       -- Ben Wendel
