Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday is one of the most popular songs ever written. We learn how to sing this at a very early age, and we naturally want to learn how to play this song once we start learning a new instrument.

In these video lessons, I take you step-by-step through the song in a way that will help you remember and retain what you learned.

Even if you play a different instrument than the Trumpet or Saxophone, you can still follow along and learn the song.

If you want to learn how to play more songs by ear, Contact Me for private online lessons.
