This subject was chosen becasue I felt a need of a method for the teaching of brass instruments. Most teachers whose major instrument is not a member of the brass family have had too little opportunity to study and find out what is necessary for developing a good breass instrument player. In far too many cases a teacher is expected to be able to teach the brass instruments after completing a three or four months course. This method is intented to be used as a guide, in conjunction with other material. The aim is to put in writing the proper fundamentals necessary for good brass playing. The exercies are written progressively and are to be take up only when the student is ready for them. It is for this reason that supplementary material must be used.
