Quarter Tone Technique for Saxophone
The goal of this technique book is to encourage saxophonists to learn this technique and to encourage composers to write for it. Quarter tonality presents new melodic and harmonic possibilities that can bring previously unexplored textures, colors, and atmospheres to music. This book will contain fingerings of all quarter tones that exist throughout the continuous quarter tone region of the saxophone, which encompasses all notes from low G# to high F#, as well as a few quarter tones that exist elsewhere. It will then delve into chord studies, scale studies, and ear training studies, each of which bring new tonalities, colors, and sounds to life. The book will end with a series of etudes designed to challenge the performer and explore the melodic and harmonic possibilities quarter tone music makes possible.
