Saxophone Scales

Saxophone scales! Yes it might make you shudder. Why should you sit there learning sax scales when you could just get on with playing?

A question I asked myself when I started playing saxophone songs. It wasn't until about 5 months in when I'd given up learning them that I realised that almost all the tunes I was making up whilst playing were in the same scale, Bb Major.

Then, when practicing my fingerings I started noticing that if I changed from Bb Major it didn't quite sound right and I would have to compensate for the change by playing the note long or short.



Alto Sax Scales

The fact is that these saxophone scales apply to all saxes. If you take the time to learn your tenor or alto sax scales you will gain the ability to play different types of music. People choose scales to write their music in because the scale gives them a mood or sound that they what to convey.

I've started off by listing all the Major scales for your to study, practice and learn. Taking the time to learn saxophone scales will not only improve your overall saxophone sound it will also help you learn to read music so you can play saxophone songs written in specific scales.

Sax Scales

Please take the time, it will benefit your tone, embouchre and your fingering skills.

I have listed the saxophone scales in what I would consider to be the easiest order to learn. That is with the fewest sharps or flats listed first. Sharps are indicated by the hash (#) sign and flats are indicated by the italic b. If you find it easier to do it another way then be my guest.

Remember, whatever you do and how ever you choose to learn the sax scales it should be about having fun whilst playing. If you dont enjoy learning saxophone scales in a regimented fashion then try bringing a fun element into your practice regime.
