Saxophone anyone?

I took up saxophone about a year ago. I picked up the basics easy enough as I already play piano which I'm good at and can therefore read music. I'm working on my grade 3 saxophone but I just can't do it! It squeaks constantly especially if I tongue or move from like the G-A-B to the F-E-D. Also, I can't play low D either, without octave key is still plays an octave higher.

Any advice? Thanks

Yeah, just keep at it. We had a guy that would play sax at church with us and it sounded awesome. It wasn't lead stuff but how it filled out the sound was just great.

I used to play the alto Saxophone several years ago. squeaks base on how you use your tongue to interrupt air follow. 2nd it seem that pads are not sealing properly when press. the ovtave key spring is worn out or pad not sealing like it should.
