When I started lessons with Marissa in March 09 I had never taken vocal lessons or even sung in the presence of another human being. I was nervous going to my first session not knowing what to expect; but I was immediately comforted by Marissa's warm personality. She's really helped me step out of my boundaries and explore vocal ranges I never thought that I could reach. The potential that I see in myself has skyrocketed since the beginning of the year. I know I have improved greatly with her help and there is still so much I want/need to learn and I will continue to take lessons with Marissa. She is always there if you have questions or need extra guidance. I would highly recommend Marissa.JOAN - FOREST HILLS, NY Teacher: Marissa K.
About the Saxophone
Like clarinets, saxophones use a single reed. Saxophone reeds are proportioned slightly differently to clarinet reeds, being wider for the same length. Each size of saxophone (alto, tenor, etc.) uses a different size of reed.
