From the Publisher

This book brings together studies that focus on saxophone-specific technical difficulties, such as register changes, dexterity in the low register, and coordination of the ring and little fingers.  Similar to Buddhist meditation mantras, the exercises are repeated gradually increasing the difficulty level.  An ideal reference for advanced saxophonists that can be used in lessons or as concert preparation.

Difficulty guide: 6-8
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
