Berklee Practice Method - Tenor Sax

by Jim Odgren, Bill Pierce
available from Amazon.com

front cover

This is the first-ever method that teaches you how to play in a rock band. Learn what all the great musicians seem to know intuitively, how to listen, interact and respond, improvise, and become part of the groove. Developed by the faculty of Berklee College of Music, the book and play-along CD will help improve your timing, technique, and reading ability. Become the great player that everyone wants to have in their band.

Lessons throughout this book guide you through technique that is specific to playing the saxophone in a contemporary ensemble. When you play in a band, your primary concern is with melody and improvisation, how to develop your mastery of phrasing, articulations, breathing, chords, scales, and improvisation techniques. Daily practice routines are designed for practicing by yourself or with other musicians. The accompanying CD features outstanding Berklee players and covers a variety of styles including rock, funk, jazz, blues, swing, and bossa nova.

Topics include:

  • learning by ear
  • theory and technique
  • rhythmic interpretation
  • improvisation
  • comping
  • reading
  • song form
  • interpreting lead sheets

This series coordinates methods for many different instruments, and all are based on the same tunes, in the same keys. If you know a guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, vocalist, horn player, etc., have them pick up the Berklee Practice Method for their own instrument, and jam together!
