How to play the Mandalorian theme on Saxophone

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

The music from The Mandalorian was written by Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson. Göransson came up with the main theme while experimenting with a bass recorder, which he then digitally manipulated. The first season's soundtrack featured a 70-piece orchestra, but due to COVID-19, instruments for the second season were recorded remotely instead.

Göransson, who got his start composing for the TV show Community, went on to win an Academy Award and a Grammy for his work on Black Panther (2018). He has also worked extensively with Childish Gambino, producing albums and songs including "This Is America".
