08 F♯ major

The next key is F# concert, which corresponds to E♭/A♭ major on the alto/tenor saxophones. Note: Until we get to altissimo exercises, we'll assume that the highest note that we can play on the saxophone is high F (see the first alto saxophone note of measure 8 of this exercise). Step 1: Listen to the exercise.
