How To Play What A Wonderful World On The Saxophone

Hello, welcome to and welcome to this What A Wonderful World Saxophone Lesson.

What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong is a beautiful song in its own right.  However, when you add saxophone to it and play the main Louis Armstrong vocal melody to it, What A Wonderful World become even more…wonderful 🙂

We’ve had many requests from our Wonderful Members for learning how to play What A Wonderful World on the saxophone – thanks in particular to Jezma and Joe – so, here it is !

Both Joe and Jezma expressed their desire to play this song sitting under a tree somewhere.  It was a beautiful day outside on the day I filmed this series of saxophone lessons, so I took a leaf out of their book and went up the road to my local park 🙂

The birds were out having a wonderful time in the trees around me.  Keep your ears out for the happy Currawong who appeared to be enjoying the show and is now also (probably) learning how to play saxophone.

This video saxophone lesson for What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong is an edited and condensed version.

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

In the full What A Wonderful World saxophone lessons – 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.

We are all about quick wins, tips, hints and suggestions here at How To Play The Sax, as well as helping you take your saxophone playing to the next level !!

And we have some fun along the way.
