How to play Jingle Bell Rock on Saxophone

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

Jingle Bell Rock was first recorded by Bobby Helms in 1957 and has since been covered by everyone from Hall & Oates to the cast of Glee, as well as making a memorable appearance in the movie Mean Girls (2004).

According to Helms, he didn't think much of the song when it was first presented to him, but whipped it into shape with the help of session guitarist Hank Garland (though original songwriters Joe Beal and Jim Boothe dispute this).

Jingle Bell Rock is estimated to have sold more than 100 million copies since its first appearance more than 60 years ago.
