The volumes in this series are designed to meet the needs of candidates preparing for the Associated Board examinations and to provide support material for teachers. Each volume prints all the scales and arpeggios for Grades 1-8 and an accompanying table sets out clearly the requirements by grade. Recommended speeds are also printed and helpful notes given on the various forms of articulation required.
A key feature of the series is the assistance it gives in layering the foundations of a secure technique. Each volume contains a diagram of the instrument, illustrating the essential key-work and a comprehensive fingering chart including the more usual and acceptable alternatives. In addition, highly experienced teachers have contributed notes on good fingering and on other aspects of technique, and the manual gives brief hints alongside certain of the scales and arpeggios to reinforce important points. In this way students will be encouraged to learn their scales and arpeggios thoroughly and non-specialist teachers will find much valuable assistance given in support of their work.

Customer Rating This book has been very helpful to me as I have only been playing my saxophone for two and a half years and as I am still having lessons it is important to go through the scales in order to learn the music

Customer Rating just what was needed to help him progress along now up to grade 5

Customer Rating To many students scales are seen only as necessary evils that have to be endured. However, they are an essential part of learning to gain control over an instrument and to better equip both fingers and brain to cope with the different note patterns required for making music. As such this book is an invaluable aid to progress. It may be worth noting that that the scales are not grouped according to the ABRSM grade requirements but are presented in semitone order. Personally, I find the former more useful for my examination students.

Customer Rating This book was recommended by a friend. I was very impressed with the content. Not only does it give all the scales, grouped by major, minor, etc, but it shows fingering, gives some information about exam requirements and has lots of other useful information.
