Back to Basics for Trumpeters - Teachings of Vincent Cichowicz
The Teachings of Vincent Cichowicz. This book is built around interviews that Luis E. Loubriel conducted with Vincent Cichowicz and his most successful disciples over thirteen years, woven together with Loubriel's own analysis, and organized according tothe central themes of Cichowicz's methodology. Although Cichowicz developed no rigid, one-size-fits-all system - indeed, his special talent was for custom tailoring his teaching to the needs of each student - certain fundamentals tenets informed all of his teaching. This book memorializes those tenets through the words of the master himself and some of his exemplary proteges. As such, it represents a significant contribution to contemporary understandings of trumpet pedagogy, and brass pedagogy in general.
