Alan Bullard: Sixty For Sax

Books | Alto Saxophone

Publisher: ABRSM Publishing
Composer: Alan Bullard
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor

Sixty For Sax is an unmissible collection of studies that cover the full range of musical styles with challenges for players of all abilities.

Discover the versatility of your Saxophone - this progressive set of sixty studies varies from the sad, sorrowful and bluesy to jumping Jazz and elegant Classical tunes. Each study is designed to address a particular Saxophone technique, from legato slurs to stuttering staccatos, and each study is written in a characterful style that reflects the style of playing.
The studies are intended to provide a systematic coverage of different aspects of technique, from Grades 1 all the way up to 8, and all are directly applicable to the playing standards required for the ABRSM examination program for both Tenor and Alto Saxophones.

          Clearly set out and easy to follow.
          Perhaps it might be better to have a few more easy pieces, as the difficulty ramps up quite quickly!

          An invaluable book for all types of students. Has excellent exam material and also playable just for fun. In fact I lost my original copy and bought a second as I cant do without it!!

          This is a great book full of fun pieces to play. The many styles covered in this book really are great fun to play and my students have as much fun preparing them as any other piece. The titles are descriptive for example sad sax, funky sax and ragtime sax and give a great sense of the mood the title suggests. (The Flute version is similar). This is a good book and is good value. You will not regret the purchase.

          Great range of pieces for a beginner. Although I do play other instruments and sing so have a good understanding of written music, I am new to the Alto Sax so it is great that there is a variety within this book to help build technique and good sound.

          This is an absolute must for any budding saxophonist! There are pieces for all the ABRSM grades 1-8 and plenty more material that you can use for repertoire or sight reading practice. Each study has its own individual style and will help develop a whole range of technical points. Brilliant!

          I think that this book is very suitable for beginners all the way up people who have been playing for a long time as there is a variety of music for everyone to choose from. The pieces are all very different and intersting and I look forward to playing all the pieces in the book.
