How to connect yout technique to your playing

SCALE FUNCTIONS – PRACTICE LIKE THIS IS MORE EFFECTIVE
How to connect your technique to your playing
Getting inspired by my technique, yes it is fun to be able to execute. I need more technique, yes of course, but not for the sake of the technique.
Do it for the sake of music!
I believe the goal with technique exercise is to practice great applicable material which is fitting directly into melodies and solos which you will be playing.
And not to practice material we will not use on a daily basis.

OVERTONES – DO THIS AND GET THE BEST SOUND

OVERTONES – DO THIS AND GET THE BEST SOUND
Practice overtones and get a much richer sound and better tone control
Overtones make your sound richer. You want to have a rich sound with a lot of overtones displayed present.
With a lot of overtones present in your sound your sound gets more projection, it becomes more powerful and you get a better control of your sound.
Overtones also have a direct influence on your ability to play falsetto register on the saxophone.
All this leads to better control of the horn. Great sound also influences the ease of your technique on the saxophone.
All saxophone players should practice overtones and get the advantages of this.
