Students Learn about Saxophone Sound

Creekside second grade students were visited by Daniel Morris, saxophonist for The Band of Oz. Students have been studying properties of sound, including how vibration and air columns affect sound.  Mr. Morris explained these concepts in relationship to his breath and mouthpiece, the reed and neck on a saxophone, and how the opening and closing of keys affect the pitch of the sound the saxophone makes.
