    Horn Fundamentals

    This book is a compilation of the basic rudimentary exercises I have played as a matter of routine to keep me in the requisite physical shape to endure the rigors of a demanding orchestral, solo, and chamber music career. They also represent the underlying concepts and principles on which my teaching of technical issues has been predicated, and which I have always endeavored to impart to my own students. It is the kind of book I wish had been readily available to me during the course of my career.

    Efficiency in technical development requires patience, creative imagination, and a dedication to the ultimate goal of technical perfection is an important component of my teaching. Additionally, it should be noted that technical perfection exists solely as a means to achieve a musical goal, providing musicians with the necessary confidence and tools to express the complete range of musical emotions.
