5.0 out of 5 stars Get this book! 11 Dec 2000
By Sohnie Hill - Published on Amazon.com
I took a course in teaching brass instruments at the University of North Texas this past semester. Scott Whitener's book was one of the texts used in the course. I believe that anyone wishing to learn more about brass instruments would benefit from reading Scott Whitener's book. He discusses the basic concepts of brass playing, mouthpieces, trumpets, trombones, tubas, horns, baritones/euphoniums, breathing, articulation, posture, instrument care, tone production, and the historical development of brass instruments. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good techniques book for those not familiar with brass instruments! 24 Mar 2006
By OrliaAnn - Published on Amazon.com
This book has great info on the various brass instruments, exercises and fingerings for the more common instruments. It is the required text for my college's Brass Techniques class for music teachers with little or no brass background. Overall a good buy, especially for those looking to get basic info before they start teaching instrumental music.

I got it for a brass methods class at school. It has a lot of good information in it but I don't feel like it's worth the price.
