Anastasia McQueen’s saxophone performances make us want to find out more about this instrument, and that is why were are going to talk more here about this instrument whose name came from the union of two words: sax, from the surname of its creator, Joseph Sax, and phone, the word for sound. So, in fact, its name means the Sound of Sax.
The saxophone is an interesting instrument because it was created to have all of the qualities and strength of classical brass instruments combined with the acoustic qualities of the instruments of the woodwind family.
Another curiosity of the sax is that it is considered by most to be a woodwind instrument despite being made from metal. The reason for this is that a wooden reed is used in the mouthpiece just like in woodwind instruments.
Originally, saxophones were designed for classical orchestras and for military bands. However, over the years, as the 20th century dawned, this instrument became best known for popular music, especially in jazz music where it became a star instrument.
Since then, it has become common to find famous artists who play this instrument and who perform with great success.
