Like bezozzi, I'd like to extend any help to you as well. I made lead tenor in All-State Jazz my sophomore year, as well as the following years. I was a GHP jazz major the summer before my junior year. I also did classical All-State. I'm currently a junior Jazz Performance major at Florida State.
Hello. I'm assuming since you're working on a GMEA étude that you are from Georgia. If you don't mind me asking, where do you go to school?
I'm a senior performance major and have been giving lessons on these étudesfor 4 years as well as made all state my senior year of high school. If you have any questions about it whatsoever, don't hesitate to talk to me! The same extention goes out to any questions you may have about saxophone as well.
