The saxophone is also part of the woodwind family, alongside the clarinet and the flute, and like the clarinet uses a reed to produce the sound. It has a big strong sound that is popular amongst students and which helps to fill out the middle sections of the band.
The saxophone is bigger and heavier than the clarinet and a neck strap is used to support the weight of the instrument while playing so it would be more suitable to those students who are able to manage the extra weight.
Students also need to be able to reach their hand around the instrument so the saxophone would not be suitable for those students with particularly small hands. Beginner students start with the Alto Saxophone and some students then move on to either the bigger Tenor or Baritone Saxophones once in Concert Band
