Hello new to forums and new to sax. I looking for guidance/suggestions on how to control the audible sound from my sax. In essence dynamics, how to play softer and louder. For me it is either 'On' or its 'Off' and when its on, its loud. I know my sax will take me a lifetime to master, but I want to make these beginning years easier on my wife's ears , not to mention that dynamics are a very important part to any musical instrument.

Thank you for all your comments and help
