Description: Unparalleled in scope, this groundbreaking series for E-flat Alto and B-flat Tenor offers a single collection of Repertoire and supporting materials written or arranged specifically for saxophone. With Repertoire spanning from the Baroque to contemporary eras, Recordings, Etudes, Technique, and Orchestral Excerpts, this comprehensive series serves as a balanced and organized pedagogical resource from the beginner to advanced levels of study. Nine progressive volumes of Repertoire expose students to original works and arrangements of diverse styles from W.A. Mozart to Violet Archer, with selected works by notable jazz artist Paul Desmon (Take Five), and living composer Phil Woods. Each level provides opportunities to explore Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and contemporary works, with original, unaccompanied selections from Levels 5 through 8 that use extended techniques such as multiphonics, key clicks, and bisbigliando. Earlier works pre-dating the origin of the saxophone have been carefully arranged with consideration of the unique quality of the instrument. Exposure to these works help to develop musicianship and an understanding of tonality, creating well-rounded and versatile performers. Selections written for both E-flat Alto and B-flat Tenor include piano accompaniments that function with both instruments. The Official Syllabi of The Royal Conservatory are essential for teachers preparing students for examinations. Students and their parents will also benefit from the information presented in these helpful resource books. The syllabi include information about application procedures and marking systems for RCM Examinations, technical requirements and listings of a wide range of repertoire for each level of study, and comprehensive bibliographies of music texts and reference books. This resource outlines the saxophone curriculum for the Preparatory to ARCT levels of RCM Examinations. The Saxophone Syllabus includes an extensive listing of repertoire organized by musical style, historical era, or genre.
