I Want To Hear A Saxophone
From Plank Road Publishingby Teresa Jennings
Doing a unit on musical instruments? This song features the four most commonly known saxophones: soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone. The arrangement on the recording is, as you might expect, a saxophone quartet. The tune is a simple and memorable one - light and bouncy, and a little bit quirky, just like the saxes themselves.
The song is played three times through. The first time, the kids sing it. The second time, the saxophones take turns playing the melody for four bars each, with pick-up. The third time through the tune, the first two versions are combined, like a partner song. To enhance their study, let students just listen to the instrumental version of the song on the recording as well. (from Music K-8, Vol. 25, No. 1)
