Description

Composer's note:

'All in Good Time' came about because I wanted to include a piece of music in a Saxtet concert that included students of mixed abilities. When Saxtet gives a schools concert we generally do a workshop of some kind where we demonstrate a variety of topics including breathing, elementary improvisation, rhythm and the techniques of ensemble playing. I thought it would be a nice idea to add focus to the workshops and work on a piece that could be played during our concert.

It was written for the students of Wellington School in Somerset, UK, which has a thriving saxophone department run by Susan and Nick White. Because there are often many beginners, I included easy alto and tenor parts so that everyone could be included. The piece can be played with or without these parts. I've also included a sheet of piano chords to help beginners practise the two short improvised sections - I know this kind of soloing can be intimidating when you're only just starting! I hope you all enjoy it.

My titles generally come after the piece has evolved and 'All in Good Time' reflects a lesson I have recently learnt - that things do happen, but - all in good time.
