These 11 duets are new and original compositions by Dave McKeown, a fully qualified and highly experienced woodwind teacher and performer. They are a little easier than the 10 Jazzy Duets title in the same series. If you play grade 3 standard and upwards you will really enjoy these pieces. They are in a variety of styles from rock to gospel to swing, and each duet sets a new challenge. The brief sample recording is of three duets from the collection played on Clarinet, Flute and Saxophone

11 Easy Jazzy Duets for Alto and Tenor Saxophone are

  • fully compatible with the Clarinet and Flute volumes in the series…great for mixed ensembles.
  • fully articulated to help develop that sense of jazz style.
  • great for helping with jazz rhythms.
  • road tested with scores of students.
  • fun to play.
  • great as stand alone pieces without the second part.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
