Gammes et Arpèges – Cahier 2 by Marcel Mule (1901-2001) is the second of three books of exercises on scales and arpeggios for saxophone. Made for intermediate students, this method offers guidance to improve the player's technique while keeping a strong musicality. An introduction on how to use the book and the exercises is given at the beginning, with explanatory illustrations. Marcel Mule (1901-2001) is one of the greatest French saxophonists, renowned worldwide for his work on the classical saxophone repertoire. He was teaching his students how to obtain a good quality of sound and believed it was dependent on the embouchure, the emission, the mastery of vibrato and, thus, of breathing. He wrote different methods that focus on technique, articulation and tone productions such as Dix-huit Exercices ou Études, Exercices Journaliers d'après Terschack or 30 Grands Exercices ou Études d'après Soussmann (in two books), among others.
