Soprano Saxophone Sine Wave tuning Exercises
Metronomes have been used for almost 200 years by musicians to help them to play in time. The Sine Wave Tuning Exercises are a unique System that successfully offer a pitch equivalent.
Extremely slow exercises are generated using a pure Sine Wave. The Player matches the exact pitch eliminating any 'beats'. Areas of poor intonation can easily be identified and remedied. Pitch Awareness becomes sensitised with sustained use.
The download for Soprano Sax Download includes:
- the Pdf booklet of the 12 exercises
- 12 Mp3 Audio files that can be used daily to help train you to play perfectly in tune (or as close as any instrument can!)
The exercises have been written especially to provide the most ideal Tuning 'workout' whilst being musical and expanding the ear! (each exercise spans 2 Octaves)
You play along with the super slow perfectly in tune MP3 Sine Waves-
giving you time to match your tuning.
There is no place to hide!
You will identify which notes are the most problematic on your instrument
and can work how to best to resolve them- wether to use:
faster air stream, a better fingering, more relaxed throat, improved tongue position, different mouthpiece!, etc
There are few things worse for a performer than to be preoccupied
with tuning- it can really distract and undermine self confidence-
ruining the enjoyable experience of playing music.

I find it very useful for improve tuning using EARS and not the EYES at the tuner. I use it not only with the written notes but also experimenting intervals. I think a good "second edition" could have chords under the sine waves. Thank you JazzDuets!
Before this I had been resorting to using cello drone material on You Tube. This is so much better. Works great with tenor. It is a real workout and I am finding that it is great all round ear-training as it is really helping me with pre-hearing intervals before I play them - a fundamental skill but one which, I admit, I have not been very good at previously. At this price this is a n absolute bargain. Great work Nick.
Soprano Saxophone Sine Wave tuning Exercises it’s really great the soprano is Dutch a hard instrument to keep in tune these exercises really help especially with the mp3 files a big help great value as well thank you. Joe
Works also fine with tenor sax
This is an excellent product, well thought out. Previously I’ve been using cello drones playing different scales and chord structures over but this works even better. For soprano I doubt anything could beat this, it even works for alto if you transpose and use the proper register.
