I’m working on keeping my fingers closer to the keys, does anyone have any tips/exercises to share that can help with this? Right now, I’m going through scales and chords, slowly and without blowing, and watching my hands in a mirror. Any tips you have to share would help me out, thanks. Look at this player in the video playing this Saxophone solo from the Classics IV, I set the timer on the saxophone solo…..look how close he keeps his fingers to the keys.
my teacher used to hold his hand about an inch away from my fingers and the exercise was that I would play but try not to let my fingers touch his hand. maybe you have a family member around that could do that?
