Developing a Personal Saxophone Sound (introduction to book) | David Liebman

It is my contention that for a mature and serious student, understanding the reasoning behind a concept goes further than mere imitation and repetition for improving skills.

All times are GMT. I just ordered this book off of eBay last week, it should be here sometime in the next couple of days. It’s like having a long and comprehensive lesson with Liebman; provides concrete, sonic illustrations of stuff in the book; and is worth every penny of the 60 bucks it costs. The DVD is indeed different, and as was noted here is not develloping as a playalong.

This is a good representaion of Joe Allard’s concepts of tone production- Joe Allard doesn’t get much credit, and its hard to listen to Liebman’s somewhat flawed demonstrations of some of the concepts on the video tape that accompanies the peesonal, but since Allard is now passed on, if you can’t study with one of Joe Allard’s students like Victor Morosco this is the next best thing.

As is the case personsl any great teacher, they should inspire you to do further research and hopefully develop original concepts of your own. It looks like I made the right decision. There is one main artistic premise underlying this book. I think its a great introduction to the Joe Allard concept. It is apparent that tone on an instrument is the first level of communication perceived by the listener, preceding stylistic and musical elements such as rhythm, melody and harmony.

Developing a Personal Saxophone Sound (introduction to book)

I think Lieb did some extremely good work going into physiological and psychological processes involved in getting a good sound on the horn, and his exercises and suggestions are infinitely helpful. A DVD is not really an option.

Chapter seven covers Lieb’s thoughts on reeds and mouthpieces and has some helpful advice on these matters. Similar to the way we use our voice when singing or in ordinary speech to express ourselves, one must recognize and isolate those parts of the body involved in the process. Dave Liebman can’t play his way out of a paper bag!

I’m hoping it will come today or tomorrow. What have people’s experiences with this book been? Bookmarks Bookmarks Digg del. I like the presentation and exercises so much, I’ve used them continually for the last 12 years or so.

If the mind can understand why and how something works there is a higher likelihood that real change and progress can occur. This book a new edition with minor additions is meant to put any saxophonist, regardless of style on a firm footing without being at a disadvantage in the pursuit of a good tone and in the final result, enjoyment of the instrument. This book is the result of several decades of experience as a saxophonist and teacher.

But it is in this book that I have clearly outlined the physical and acoustical reasons why certain principles of tone production work.

If you take what Lieb says seriously and experiment with his suggestions, you’ll love what you get out of it in the long run. You know how it is I found it pretty clear. The time now is Of course after the main principles are understood, each musician should and will naturally customize the concepts to fit their own personality, needs and technique.


Obviously visual demonstrations of principles and exercises are helpful. My first experiences dsveloping Joe began as a teenager in New York City after I had studied locally with a fine teacher, Nat Shapiro, who taught me the basics of sound production, fingerings and technique. With Joe came principles and concepts, all eventually leading to the same conclusion which was to be physically and mentally relaxed on the instrument.

My band Progger is pretty cool if you like jazz, liebmann, and alien laser sword fights.

He would say in perfect French of course: Liemban truth, the saxophone is a relatively easy instrument to produce a sound. A good college or university library has this book.

Results 1 to 20 of I realize now I should probably have asked this before I bought the book, but I got excited. Originally Posted by dirty.

This is my favorite saxophone-tone-oriented book in existence. Regarding the video, I wasn’t aware that Dave’s presentation left something to be desired. A real awakening occurred a few years after studying with Joe when I realized how the tone of the great artists all had in common certain characteristics:
