1. Loboda, Emily J. An analysis of overtone production techniques in saxophone teaching methods.

Degree: 2018, University of North Carolina – Greensboro

The playing of overtones on the saxophone helps in acquiring the altissimo register and improves clarity, definition, intonation, control, resonance, dynamics, timbre, and flexibility. This document seeks to identify the prevalent methods which exist for teaching overtone production techniques on the saxophone and organize them into a useful resource for other saxophonists. This study includes interviews with university saxophone professors who were asked: 1) why they teach overtone production, 2) how they teach overtone production, and 3) what books they use to teach overtone production. From the research it is evident that along with the perfection of altissimo, there are other common benefits associated with overtone production. The benefits referred to most often were altissimo, tone, and intonation. The preferred books among the interviewees were Beginning Studies in the Altissimo Register, Top-Tones for the Saxophone, Saxophone High Tones, Voicing: An Approach to the Saxophone's Third Register. Similar elements and procedures were used amongst the interviewees while discussing methods of teaching overtones. Using the information gathered, this document presents an expanded list of skills gained from overtone production, a list of the most commonly used method books for teaching overtone production, and a clear method for approaching, teaching, and refining overtone production on the saxophone. The method presented includes written out exercises accompanied by video examples of the exercises.; Altissimo, Harmonics, Overtones, Saxophone Advisors/Committee Members: Steven Stusek (advisor).
