This guide is intended to help you use the UNT Music Library to find printed music for saxophone, books about the saxophone, and journals devoted to the saxophone.
The UNT Libraries use the Library of Congress call number system to classify books and scores in our collections. Call numbers for scores begin with the letter M. Here are important numbers to know for saxophone music. Under each individual number, scores are usually in alphabetical order by composers' last names. Once you know this, you can browse if you want to select some music.
Saxophone alone M 106-107
Saxophone with piano accompaniment M 268-269
Saxophone with big band M 1205-1206
Saxophone with orchestra M 1034
Saxophone with orchestra, reduction for saxophone and piano M 1035
Saxophone with string orchestra M 1134
Saxophone with string orchestra, reduction for saxophone and piano M 1135
Call numbers for books about music begin with the letters ML or MT. ML stands for music literature, MT for music theory and music teaching. Here are some call number ranges for books about the saxophone

MT 500, 505—instruction and study
MT 500, 502—methods
