Saxophone Sheet Music and Backing Tracks

Updated on June 14, 2014

Are You A Saxophonist Looking To Build Your Repertoire? You Need Saxophone Backing Tracks!

I create my own saxophone backing tracks for personal use and have now also made available for others to download as well. These backing tracks also come with the saxophone music sheets for both E flat and B flat instruments. No matter if you have a tenor or alto sax or both, you're covered!

We all need to practise many things to gain control of the saxophone. Things like proper air support and breathing exercises, scales and many other fingering exercises. But if you play the sax and a friend or family member asks you to play something, you don't want to play them a major scale or related exercise.

The reason we started playing sax in the first place was to learn how to play some of our favorite songs, so here's your chance to learn some tunes that are great for the saxophone. So work with play along sax tracks and you make learning the songs much easier and way more fun!

What Are Some Good Saxophone Songs to Play?

I'm Glad You Asked!

As a professional saxophonist for over 25 years now, I've found myself in many situations where I needed to play many different types of music. Over the years I've also arranged and recorded my own versions of many saxophone songs which I now have as my own personal, custom made play along sax audio backing tracks that I can put on my computer, iPod or phone and have with me as an instant band to back me up at a gig or party. Very handy!

Some of these songs are what you might expect to hear as saxophone songs like "Tequila" or Yakety Sax" but there are many more as you will soon discover. Check out the full saxophone music downloads at
