Saxophone Embouchure Made Simple

For those of you who’ve been keeping up with the blog (and shame on you if you’re not one of those people), I’ve recently been putting out articles that have to do with the art of saxophone tone creation, including articles on overtones, practicing on the mouthpiece, and proper positioning of the lower lip.

Since a video is worth a thousand pictures (yes, I just came up with that on the spot), I figured I’d feature some great instructional videos by ace saxophone chief, composer, and educator Rick Hirsch. These videos make it crystal clear what needs to be done to get the most out of your saxophone’s tone-producing capabilities while instilling in you the proper method of embouchure formation.

It’s an awesome three-part series of brief and non-boring videos – so enjoy!
