Teaching Brass: A Guide for Students and Teachers is a comprehensive resource perfectly suited for university brass methods or technique classes, band directors needing details about brass playing, or anyone looking for in-depth information on how to play and teach the trumpet, horn, trombone, euphonium or tuba.
Teaching Brass is the only resource of its kind: a book and a website. The book contains group exercises in score form and fingering charts for in-class playing. The website contains information about how to play each instrument including sub-chapters on getting started, technique, intonation, tone and much more, and offers over three hundred full color images, 100 videos, audio files, PDF downloads, PowerPoint/Keynote quizzes, and hundreds of links. When you purchase the book you also receive an access code that allows entry into the Teaching Brass web site.
Designed to be a lifelong resource, the platform of a book and website has provided the authors with a rich palette with which to deliver the content with clarity and precision. As readers progress through the web content, they will find references to the exercises in the book that are designed to reinforce the information on the web site. This format serves as an effective brass methods curriculum, and will continue to be a valuable resource for music educators long after graduation.
