    Horn Playing from the Inside Out [3rd Edition]

    "Horn Playing from the Inside Out" deconstructs brass playing and presents specific methods to improve technique, musicianship, practicing, audition taking, managing performance anxiety and expressing authentic emotion through sound. Warm-ups and daily exercises are presented and explained. The final section, "Applying the Method," puts it all together with step-by-step instructions on how to master challenging orchestral excerpts both technically and artistically.

    The Third Edition print book presents MRI images and data of an elite group of horn players, including Stefan Dohr, Sarah Willis, Fergus McWilliam, Stefan Jezierski (all of the Berlin Philharmonic), Marie-Luis Neunecker, Jeff Nelsen, and others. MRI films confirm that what we do internally, inside the mouth, pharynx, and thoracic cavity is just as important as what we do externally. And, just as there are hallmarks of healthy embouchures that most professional horn players employ, there are many consistent internal movement patterns among the elite group. Epstein presents tried and true methods to learn and teach these exemplary biomechanics.
