The saxophone (also called the sax) is a woodwind instrument. Saxophones are usually made of brass and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to that of the clarinet. The saxophone was invented by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax in 1840. Sax wanted to create an instrument that would be the most powerful and vocal of the woodwinds, but the most adaptive of the brass—that would fill the vacant middle ground between the two sections. He patented the saxophone on June 24, 1846, in two groups of seven instruments each. Each series consisted of instruments of various sizes in alternating transposition. The series pitched in B♭ and E♭, designed for military bands, has proved extremely popular and most saxophones encountered today are from this series.
The saxophone has proved very popular in military band music, and is commonly used in jazz and classical music.
Playing technique for the saxophone can be different based on the style that student wants to learn (classical, jazz, rock, funk, etc.). There are basic saxophone techniques: Embouchure, Vibrato
