New York, NY – Carl Fischer Music announces the release of Universal Method for Saxophone (O532SB – Spiral-bound – $39.99) by Paul DeVille.

Upon opening Paul DeVille's Universal Method for Saxophone, the student will find, first and foremost, the author's promise that, "…everything which patient research, practical experience and knowledge could suggest has been brought to bear to make this the greatest and most comprehensive method for saxophone ever attempted." Covering the full gambit of saxophone technique exercises and a wide selection of repertoire examples, the DeVille method has been the trusted training method for saxophone players since 1908. This spiral-bound edition serves to continue this well-known tradition of excellence.

Universal Method for Saxophone is available now through Carl Fischer Music, or your favorite music retailer.

Though a little known fact, Paul DeVille is actually a very clever pen name for Jean Paul "Harry" Prendiville. Beyond being a well known arranger and bandmaster in his time, Prendiville was also a composer, publisher, and musical merchant based in Worcester, Massachusetts in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Australian born, Prendiville studied music in London, and built his career and life in America. His band arrangements of Angelus from "Scenes Pittoresques" by Jules Massenet, When Life Is Brightest of Ciro Pinsuti, and Ave Maria by Bach/Charles Gounod were well known in their time but he continues to be best known for his Universal Method for Saxophone.

Carl Fischer Music has been the leader in providing the highest quality educational music since 1872. Visit to order products or to find a retailer near you. For review copies of this publication, please contact Elizabeth Holub at (212) 777-0900, ext. 230 or send an e-mail to
