Sammanfattning: The purpose of this study is to get a broader understanding of the factors surrounding the choice of genre affiliations among saxophonists based on two primary umbrella terms: the jazz/black American music genre and the classical genre. The focus of the study can be boiled down to these research questions: • When and how does a saxophonist usually pick their genre affiliation, if it even is an active choice? • Are there any correlations between the genre affiliation of a teacher and that of their students’ later genre affiliations? Data was collected through an online survey along with interviews with five prominent saxophonists from both genres after which they were analyzed and compared to previous research. The results of the study show that there are many ways a saxophone goes about to find their genre affiliations but a few themes revealed themselves. An inspiring moment or an inspiring teacher is often one way, but educational choices seem to be another common way. A saxophonist’s genre affiliation is also found to be strongly correlated with that of their teacher. Furthermore, jazz saxophonists and male saxophonists place less importance on their teacher’s as influential in the choice of their genre affiliation than classical and female saxophonists.
