Harvey Pittel is Branford Marsalis’ teacher – that should be enough to get your attention!
Harvey Pittel studied with Joe Allard from 1966-1984 and in this amazing YouTube series he shows us what he has been teaching for the last thirty years.
In his book Developing a Personal Saxophone Sound, Dave Liebman says ‘the closer you get to the source of the sound, the greater the effect on the overall sound’. In other words, how you breathe, form your embouchure and play the mouthpiece has a much greater effect than the type of mouthpiece or the saxophone you play. You can check out this lesson here to view some exercises on just the mouthpiece. If you purchase the silencer you also get a small booklet with exercises and a DVD! The silencer is currently available from sax.co.uk
and much more …
I hope you find this useful!
