Learn circular breathing, multiphonics, altissimo register playing and more.

The Saxophone Sound Effects book by Berklee Press will add unique saxophone sounds to your palette of colors. The saxophone is capable of a great range of sounds, from growls and laughs to multiphonics and percussion effects. This book shows you how to do nineteen different inventive effects, with etudes that put them in a musical context. The accompanying online audio provides play-along tracks for the etudes and examples of each sound effect in isolation.

You will learn to:
Play multiphonics, quartertones, and in the altissimo register
Perform essential advanced saxophone techniques such as circular breathing, flutter-, double- and triple-tonguing
Master false fingerings, complex trills, ghost notes, and different types of vibrato
Use percussive techniques, such as clicking, clapping, and damping
Produce growls, low "A"s, as well as laughing and blowing sounds
Explore sounds unique to isolating the mouthpiece, neck, and how to create hybrid instruments such as the "flunette" and the "flax"
Mic these techniques effectively, picking up minimal extraneous noise
