Just when you thought everything everybody thought of was already on the internet, here’s something new. A site dedicated to all things saxophone. The post today is about custom mouthpieces.

My visit with the legendary Phil Barone


So now that you've gone over there, make sure you stop by  and comment.  I hear the proprietor is a real hands-on guy, and will even make you coffee.

    How are you?

    Just read through it.

    I’m a former serious Euphonium player. I eventually learned there were no professional opportunities for Euph players beyond military and circus bands.

    I played some Alto & Tenor Sax in college while majoring in music ed. I can pretty much get through Happy Birthay on each, along with a couple dozen other instruments. Of course the most important thing I learned at music school was how to play Recorder duets using each nostril. (used that to frighten my young niece and nephew away from music altogether)

    I’ll fwd the link to some old friends who still play pro.

    Great first read. Sax World is a sure hit!

    for ALL of them!

    Cool, didn’t know you could do that.

    But if I had to choose only one it would be Best Blog Evah!

    I can’t get links to embed on this blog.  I looked up the HTML secrets FAQ and was still lost.  I need WYSIWYG I guess.  

    But thanks for your fix.  What is the video?

    was a euphonium player, Stan Freese.  He was the DIsney World band director.  He came to our school and put on a demo of how sound is made through shortening or lengthening the tube.  He put his tuba mouthpiece on a length of garden hose, and stuck in a garden funnel for a bell, and by stretching and releasing, played Flight of the Bumblebee.  

    I was so amazed I couldn’t sleep for a couple of days.

    vote for the best sax player, in any election.  Sound reasoning, momcat.

    You need to ditch WYSIWYG and go for Auto Format.

    how does one embed, insert HTML and the like?  I am not a code monkey.
