Brass Methods Courses
"My collegiate Brass Methods students have all experienced ease and rapid success moving from the BfB trumpet to modern trumpet, horn, trombone, and tuba. Their range on the modern instruments develops quickly and they are able to find and match pitches faster. By training students to learn the harmonic series from the very beginning without using valves, it gives them the opportunity to focus on the fundamentals of brass playing, developing an efficient, beautiful sound, relying solely on aural skills to find desired pitches. Building a solid foundation of how to create sound easily and hearing pitches without any assistance from valves is beneficial to playing any brass instrument. Furthermore, my students have enjoyed learning the history of lip-blown instruments through BfB's engaging textbook and online resources."
