Information about Street Beats for Saxophone
Genres: Baroque, Classical, Folk, Funk, Jazz, Swing, Various
These ten approachable and contrasting studies cover a wide range of styles from Baroque pastiche through folk and jazz to funk. They explore an imaginative variety of tempi, articulations and registers and present plenty of rhythmic and fingering challenges.
Like all Karen Street's music, they are thoroughly satisfying to play and allow plenty of scope for self-expression beyond the technical demands.
The book includes a piece for ABRSM grade 6, five pieces for TrinityGuildhall grades 4,6 & 7, and ten pieces for TrinityGuildhall Jazz grades 5, 6, 7 & 8.
