This course is designed to give the student a practical working knowledge of the cornet/trumpet, horn, and trombone. The emphasis in this class is on learning how to effectively teach and critically evaluate the brass student as well as developing, as much as possible within the given time frame, the proper playing techniques on each instrument. Each instrument will be studied with the objective of learning the fundamentals of embouchure, tone production, and body position, breathing, articulation, intonation, and care and maintenance.
