    Default The Tenor Saxophone Index

    The Tenor Saxophone Index

    TSi logo.jpg

    The Tenor Saxophone Index, a brand new website for tenor saxophonists, was launched at the World Saxophone Congress in St Andrews in July 2012 to a specialist international audience of saxophonists, teachers, students and other musicians. The new online repertoire and resource database enables performers, teachers and students to access accurate information about works that have been composed specifically for tenor saxophone.

    The Index is the brainchild of tenor saxophonist and composer Andy Scott, the latest in a string of initiatives to raise the profile of the tenor saxophone as a contemporary classical instrument. It is designed to meet the needs of tenor saxophonists all over the world who currently struggle to find new contemporary classical repertoire. Andy Scott received a Teaching Award from the Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester, UK) to develop the online resource in collaboration with fellow tenor saxophonists Matt London and Jenni Watson.

    The database includes programme notes, performance notes, score extracts and details of instrumentation, year of composition, duration, level of difficulty and publisher for each piece. As well as this comprehensive information about repertoire, the website includes a resource centre with interviews, articles and academic papers relating to the tenor saxophone. Its Patrons are the high profile saxophonists James Houlik, who has dedicated his life to the contemporary classical tenor saxophone, and the world leading classical and jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis.

    As the lead developer on this project I would love you all to visit the site and offer feedback to help us fill information gaps and suggest new original works to be added to the Index as we continue to develop this site into an invaluable resource for all!

    Do check out the 'Index Guide' which contains an in depth run down about the site and the way we work before posting questions. Submissions must be made through the TSi 'Contact' form not on here.


    The Tenor Saxophone Index is live and online at www.tenorsaxindex.info


    Hope you all enjoy the site and I look forward to hearing from some of you.

    Big Noises!
