comment Difference between different kinds and brands of reeds on the alto sax
As a clarinetist, I find that Vandorens are about 1/4 strength harder than Ricos.

comment How to learn to play 'out of phase' with yourself?
My suggestion would be to record one hand, then practice listening to it while playing the other hand. Then you can begin to hear what it should sound like. I know this suggestion has nothing to do with hand independency, but it's where I would start if I were to attempt anything even remotely like this.

Might I also suggest following along in the score. imslp.org has many public domain music scores. Find one and listen along.

comment How to deal with the fear of auditions?
I used to have a big fear of auditions. But like many things, practice makes perfect. The more I do it the easier it gets. Still not a breeze, still get stressed out, but I can play more reliably.

comment Arbitrary length full-measure rests in Lilypond
If there is an improvisation going on, maybe consider using a fermata over a single R1 rest.

comment Harmonizing melody exercise question with specific parameters
+1 Good catch. Much agreed. Though this resolution doesn't "break the rules," it still just doesn't sound right.

comment Is it possible to play a low A on a recorder
The only way your are going to get a low A out of a C recorder is to add more piping to the instrument. I'd highly suggest just getting an alto recorder.

@SomeshMukherjee no it is not. You would need to make it yourself out of pvc pipe.
