Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Excellent guide for practicing scales

Cons

  • Not much explanation on how to use the book

Best Uses

    Comments about Hal Leonard Pares Scales For Saxophone:

    As a recreational musician (sax), I found the book to be a great resource and practice aid. On the other hand, the book is probably intended as a classroom aid. Hobbyists, like me, who didn't learn music in high school or college, would benefit from some instruction on how best to use the book

    Comments about Hal Leonard Pares Scales For Saxophone:

    I am a music teacher and EVERY student who uses these books and practices from them makes All District Band in my area. Learning scales for auditions by rote (memorized) is one thing but recognizing the notes and playing scales in a variety of rhythms makes the student a fantastic sight reader! My adult students have become confident faster by working from this book as well. Not every scale is included but some of the minors are plus lip slur exercises in each key and long tones to strengthen embouchures.
