    Default Embouchure pressure SATB

    Is anyone able to provide me with some advice about "target pitch" on mouthpiece alone as a guide towards finding the correct embouchure pressure for classical playing on soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone?

    For the tenor mpc the target pitch should be Concert G and for an alto mpc should be Concert A. For the soprano and baritone I'm not sure.

    Thank you for your response! Thanks also for the linked article. The diagram at the beginning of the article contains the information I was looking for. Obviously the "target pitch" for mouthpiece alone is not something absolute, but is probably helpful as a point of departure for embouchure development.
