How To Play Mary Had A Little Lamb On The Saxophone – How To Play Merrily We Roll Along On The Saxophone.

Another great start in our beginner saxophone lessons series is learning how to play Mary Had A Little Lamb.

Sometimes known as Merrily We Roll Along, the old nursery rhyme Mary Had A Little Lamb translates nicely onto your saxophone.

However, like Hot Cross Buns, it also is not really the most amazing song in the world….. sorry about that !

It’s great for getting your fingers working on your sax, but it’s a little on the unexciting side.

How about we funk it up a bit ?

The video saxophone lesson above is a simple and edited version of how to play Mary Had A Little Lamb on the alto saxophone using your LEFT hand.

The full version of this saxophone lesson ( and ALL of our other saxophone lessons ) is inside our Saxophone Lessons Members Area 🙂

The backing track is also available to all Members, along with a handy Cheat Sheet, inside the Members Area.

I will confess to being just a little bit silly in this online saxophone lesson….but hey, I was having fun and that’s the point I am trying to make.  I want our saxophone lessons to be fun !

Please keep playing your saxophone 🙂
