Publisher Desc. This text covers every possible style appropriate to an intermediate book for brass. It includes music from the 14th century up to the beginning of the 20th century from dozens of countries, including original compositions that mimic many historic styles. The musical selections outside the standard repertoire compare well in quality to the more famous works, and have unique elements that increase students' musical vocabulary.

The great musical examples make practicing feel effortless and enriching! In addition to classical etudes, a number of jazz etudes are incorporated that represent important styles including Dixieland, Swing, Bebop, Blues and various Latin forms.
