9780195329247: Wind Talk for Brass: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching Brass Instruments

Wind Talk for Brass provides instrumental music teachers, practitioners, and students with a handy, easy-to-use pedagogical resource for brass instruments found in school instrumental programs. With thorough coverage of the most common brass instruments - trumpet, horn, trombone, baritone/euphonium, and tuba/sousaphone - the book offers the most topical and information necessary for effective teaching. This includes terminology, topics, and concepts associated with each specific instrument, along with teaching suggestions that can be applied in the classroom. Be sure to look to the back of the book for a "Practical Tips" section, which discusses common technical faults and corrections, common problems with sound (as well as their causes and solutions to them), fingering charts, literature lists (study materials, method books, and solos), as well as a list of additional resources relevant to teaching brass instruments (articles, websites, audio recordings). Without question, Wind Talk for Brass stands alone as an invaluable resource for woodwinds!

Review:


"This book is amazing! It is a Swiss Army knife for band teachers. The question and answer sections, definitions and illustrations are so inclusive and well defined that this book is a must for well seasoned and novice band teachers. The common technical faults and corrections section alone is phenomenal! This book does not stop there. As a brass specialist, I have had many colleagues ask me to help their students fix 90% of the problems that are solved in this book. To the authors, I have to say: "Thank you" for proving such a powerful tool for band teachers."--Ronald E. Litteral M.M.E., Veteran Band Teacher, Ephraim Middle School and Manti High School


"With its accessible approach to a wealth of information on brass instruments and pedagogy, this resource will be indispensable to instructors at any level. Common principles of brass instruments and pedagogy as well as idiosyncrasies of each instrument are covered in a unique format. Music teachers needing quick, practical and thorough answers to common problems or brass methods instructors looking for a comprehensive text will find this source to be richly detailed and immensely useful."--Jere L. Forsythe, Music Education Area, School of Music, The Ohio State University


"Wind Talk for Brass is an absolute necessity for all music educators interested in possessing a single, detailed reference regarding the teaching of brass instruments. A superb resource full of facts and useful pedagogical information!"--Barry E. Kopetz, Professor of Conducting, Conservatory of Music - Capital University


"A terrific reference source for both preservice and in-service instrumental music teachers...In addition to the superior organization of the text, the strength of this book lies in its widespread coverage." --Music Educators Journal
