How To Play Twist And Shout On The Saxophone

Twist and Shout by The Beatles – what a great song to play on our saxophone !

It’s got some great “call and response” opportunities.  The lead vocals and the backing vocals bounce off each other, which gives us saxophonists the chance to play one, or the other, or both.

The Beatles – is there anything that they couldn’t do ?

I feel that it is important to be aware of all different styles and genres of music.

Here at we do focus on rock, soul and funk classic hits songs from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s in our saxophone lessons.  Musically speaking, The Beatles did actually change the world.  It is important, therefore to be aware of some of the their iconic songs and in this saxophone lesson we shake it up, baby now, then we twist and shout 🙂

This saxophone lesson and video for Twist and Shout by The Beatles is an edited and condensed version.

The full and complete version of this and all of our saxophone lessons is available to our Members inside our Members Area.

In the full lesson – as with all full saxophone lessons for all songs that we are learning inside the Members Area – we break the song components down into bite sized pieces.  We slow it down, we dissect it, we build on the individual components until we are confident and comfortable enough to give it all a red hot go.
