A saxophonist as a musician must realize that music is more than just notes. Pay attention to tone, intonation, and the markings on the music. All markings are written for a reason. Dynamics, accents, crescendos, etc., should be audible to the audience. Music is comprised of contrast, so emphasize differences. After interpreting the markings, use personal taste, the conductor, or a private teacher to refine how the music should be performed. Exaggerate these markings and refine them in rehearsal, striving for an enjoyable musical performance.
