Brass Performance and Pedagogy approaches teaching brass students in a musical manner that is both comprehensive and practical. Great emphasis is placed on the importance of genuine musical development as the most effective means for enhancing skills.
All major aspects of brass playing are discussed in ways that help the instructor find the most musical, efficient means possible to help each student develop his or her full potential.
While other texts address primarily the mechanical skills of brass playing, this work shows how such skills are actually better accomplished when approached through musical means.
This book can be read as a comprehensive approach to brass pedagogy. or separate chapters can quickly serve as references to specific problems in brass performance.
