My Solo for music Emily De Ruyver-Solo
I learned how to play the simple notes of the saxophone, b,a,g,f#,f,c,d,e. I learned how to clean the saxophone, to build it. I already knew how to read notes and rhythm though. I try keep the timing with everyone else, and I count the rests in my head, just to see the beat. I practiced at home, and cleaned my instrument.
My musical skills improved a lot. The most challenging this is just learning how to play a new instrument. But because of the similar fingering to the clarinet and just practicing a lot I got over it quickly. But I still do have some problems, and I have a lot of other notes to learn. I enjoy playing with everyone else because it just seems amazing to make music that professionals do. In the future I would love to get better at the sax, and perhaps even learn how to play another instrument… Perhaps the flute or another woodwind instrument…
