How to play Baby Shark on Saxophone

On this page, we'll be learning how to play Baby Shark on Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone or Soprano Saxophone!

The origins of Baby Shark are mysterious, but it appears to have been sung as a campfire song or chant since the 1900s. Versions of the song were recorded by German singer Alexandra Müller/Alemuel (2007) and children's entertainer Johnny Only (2011) before a video from South Korean education brand Pinkfong became an international smash hit in 2016.

Performed by 10-year-old Korean-American singer Hope Segoine, Pinkfong's version has accrued billions of views, making it the most-viewed educational video of all time. It also sparked its own dance craze, the Baby Shark Challenge.
