    Your daughter definitely has one of the better tones I've heard on soprano. I'd be a proud father if I were you.

    Great soprano tone.

    Someone in that lineup needs to get their mechanism adjusted; the clacking was driving me nuts. Get some corks/oil on that thing!

    But seriously; she sounds great!!! Well done.

    Fabulous, Augie!! It's been a lot of fun to witness Amanda's progress over the years. Her SOTW aunts and uncles are quite proud of her!! And, what a great encouragement you are to her. She's very fortunate.
    Here's to continued success!

    Great playing, nice sound. She could ride the soprano all the way through college. The quartet sounds great too. Must be a wonderful music program at that school. BTW, what kind of soprano is it?

    Gary....you funny!!
    You can also say that to:
    Paul Simon
    Ronnie James Dio
    Angus Young
    Prince (well that might be too late)
    Lady Gaga
    Christina Aguilera
    Polly Parton
    Pink
    Shakira
    Fergie
    Pat Benatar
    Stevie Nicks
    Cyndi Lauper
    Linda Ronstadt
    The list of short musicians is actually very long!!!

    The soprano is a Rampone & Cazzani R1 (not the Jazz model) with a Concept mpc.
    Not sure of the reed or strength.

    Nice playing, but if she asked you not to post this video then you shouldn't have.

    That's a good rule, but not necessarily accurate in this case - You have to know your kid to make that determination...especially with youngsters. And (dare I say it) Especially little girls. They are some of the most baffling creatures in the universe. Interpret a "Don't" incorrectly, and you could be drowned in tears or get the silent treatment for a week....

    This is such a refreshing alternative - MUSIC.

    Thank you for sharing. Please let Amanda know that people who love the saxophone, who have dedicated an appreciable fraction of their lives to developing the craft of making music, hear her quartet and applaud their collective effort.

    Thank you.
    Go for The Tone,
