Performance standard - easy to moderately difficult.

Peter Moore says: "In my many years of teaching, I have found that most saxophone students won't  practice long note exercises because they are so dreadfully boring.  I could not find enough interesting slow music for students to play - so we wrote "Tone-Ups"

This book has ten carefully selected titles, complete with performance notes for each piece, for you to enjoy playing.  You will also develop your sax embouchure at the same time".

This is what customers say:

Shirley Hartlett, retired Headmistress of Shenington School, Nr Banbury, England says:

"I get frustrated when I buy a book of music and find that I can only manage to play one or two pieces.  With Tone-Ups I can play them all!" 

Stan Barrett, retired drama teacher and semi-pro clarinettist from Market Bosworth, England says:

"The 'Tone-Ups' are a joy to use.  Not only do they take the tedium out of long-note practice, but they are also sprinkled with technical and interpretive challenges.  The writers know where we're likely to need help.  They isolate each problem and tell us, in straightforward language, what to do about it.  Excellent.
