The Practicing Companion to Brass Singers!

Alternative Views:

Price: $29.95


Singing Brass provides developing, amateur, and advanced players with practicing materials that—when played with clear artistic intentions and expressive nuances—facilitate playing with a beautiful tone. The author selected singing-like melodies to encourage players to showcase their most refined musicianship.

This book represents a much needed addition to the trumpet literature by offering a series of challenging melodies that range from simple traditional melodies to complex opera arias. Each melody—when played correctly—will increase the player’s phrasing skills—as well as increasing his technical abilities in tone production and dynamic control.

This book is divided into two sections. In the first section, the author wrote 70 drills and vocalises intended to develop and maintain basic brass playing techniques. The second section includes 71 melodies arranged in a progressive order of difficulty—both technically and artistically. As an added bonus, the author included an appendix on Musicianshinp and Interpretation from his book Lasting Change for Trumpeters.


"Singing Brass's emphasis on musical style has been lacking in so many method books. The musical examples within this new book fill that void. The section on Musicianship and Interpretation adds to the value this book."
