I know well Alessandro's Recital, because we have the same repair-man and I
know some secret.

For example... he has chosen different kind of pads for each register, as I
do. He has sax pads (with metal resonator, like Elite) on the lower register
and leather ones in the throat.


I've some recording of USA school bands and I'm impressed with your
intonation. Perhaps you have a different approach.

For teachers... is there some exercise you use from the basic level?
Do you adopt the tuner from the beginning?
