Quarter Tone Technique for Saxophone is a technique book that demonstrates how to produce quarter tone notes in a fluent manner with full sound and proper intonation. This book enables the musician to perform quarter tone compositions by providing the musician with fingerings and short exercises for each note, chord studies, scale studies, ear training exercises, and etudes. The scale and chord studies exposes the musician to the quarter tone harmonic atmospheres while providing consistent, technical exercise drills the musician can use to improve his technique. The ear training enables the musician to hear the quarter tone intervals in his mind without actually playing the saxophone - more specifically, the 1/4 and 3/4 quarter tone intervals. The etude compositions exposes the musician to the compositional and musical possibilities the extended technique provides. During the early 20th century, Western composers such as Alois Haba, Ivan Wyshnegradsky, and Charles Ives began composing quarter tone works for piano, clarinet, and voice. Composers such as Dean Drummond and Easley Blackwood composed microtonal pieces for a variety of unique instruments, including pitched percussion, guitar, and electronic instruments. Since then, many composers have experimented with the new melodic and harmonic possibilities quarter tonality has to offer. There are hundreds of quarter tone pieces which have been composed for piano, voice, strings, brass, and woodwind instruments, including the saxophone. Quarter tone compositions are beginning to appear in the saxophone repertoire. The saxophone is highly capable of playing quarter tone notes, with almost the same fluidity and consistency as the normal notes, throughout nearly the entire 21/2 octave range. 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.
