    I actually had almost the exact same issue several years ago. I think that Brandon's advice is good, so I'd start there. I know that long tones were a big help for me when I was experiencing the same...

    On a similar note, I discovered recently that John Stevens has arranged "Benediction" for concert band. It's a great arrangement for middle/high school bands.

    I think the price is fine. The horn looks like it's in great shape from the pictures you have posted. Especially when you consider that a brand new Willson is in the $8500 range, I think your price...

    This is really great so far! I thought the second variation went especially well.

    The biggest thing that stood out to be was the rhythm at around the 4:20 mark. It's coming across as a triplet...

    I'm pretty sure I purchased mine off of Steven Mead's website because I similar problems finding a US seller.

    It may just be me, but I think these are overpriced. I have a set myself, and while there isn't anything wrong with them, I really don't feel there is anything special about them when compared to...

    This looks like it's in great shape. A buddy of mine who collects brass instruments has a Marzan just like this, and its a solid horn. I had never heard of them before, and was very surprised at how...

    I had a lesson with Neal Corwell recently, where we worked on a similar issue. He had me do an exercise where I would play intervals of a 4th or a 5th, while focusing on keeping my embouchure stable....

    I've been looking at trying these out for probably a year or more, but am worried that I'll spend all this money on a set, and not notice a difference. If I were to buy one size, just to try them out...

    All the above suggestions are great. I'm especially a fan of "Rhapsody" and the Clinard sonata.

    I'd also like to add the Haddad Suite for Baritone, and the Teleman Sonata in F minor. I had to...

    This is not a euphonium or baritone, but it is certainly in the brass family. It's called a Carynx, and it is essentially an ancient celtic war trumpet. The "bell" of the instrument is usually in the...

    So while polishing my horn the other week, I noticed some pitting on the leadpipe. I took it to my repairman to have him check it out, and I heard those two dreaded words: "Red rot!" While this was...
