I'm Sam Newsome and this is my new BLOG. I just wanted to say "hello" and to tell you how much I look forward sharing ideas about the soprano saxophone. I'm sure it will be a learning experience for everyone involved!
FYI: Blogs will appear every Monday. The first blog, beginning May 31, 2010, will address the common problem of INTONATION.
Don't forget to SIGN UP!
This site was created as a platform to share my thoughts on music and politics; my music; and to connect with fellow sax players committed to sharing ideas about the soprano saxophone.
