  1. Fred Dart: Jenos Takacs Sonata Op. 59

    This is a piece you don't hear much! But fortunately Mr. Dart preserved it for us.

  2. Sticky: FS: Besson New Standard Euphonium for Great Price

    This is a 3+1 compensating euphonium with a medium shank. Condition looks good, and note that the seller says valve compression is outstanding. It appears to be silver plated. No hard case, but it...

    Would this one fit the bill? The price seems pretty attractive, but this is not my field:

    So apparently Heaven gives you a choice of piston or rotary valves! :)
  5. Joplin: Euphonium Sounds - A Music Lesson within a Rag!

    This is one of my early arrangements, which I jumped on as soon as I saw the title! It is somewhat challenging technically, but not too bad. The music lesson hidden within is that the first few notes...
  6. Tip to Get More from Each Practice Session

    Here is a snip from my practice of "Spinning Song" by Mendelssohn. A real finger-twister! (And it's my own fault - I arranged it.) I suggest a way to get "free" practice time when you are working on...
  7. David Moore - Invincible - with Grimethorpe

    At some point I knew the name of the composer of this but have forgotten. Anyway, it's a nice solo. Not as flashy as some, but in the hands of a player like David it comes off just right. He seems to...

    In my own background, I had a fairly intense playing schedule while I was in the Coast Guard Band, but for 23-1/2 years after that I worked full time at a non-music job. Between the demands of the...

  10. Doc Severinsen Article Added: Guide to Brass Practice

    I took this from a Getzen hand-out that Doc wrote many years ago. The advice was worded for band directors, but I find it useful for players and teachers in general. It is now the newest entry in the...

    Certainly both models are good, pro horns, but they are quite different. In my memory the 842 is also a responsive horn, so I don't know if the Virtuoso has an advantage there. But not all of us use...

    Thanks, John!

    BTW, I only noticed how irritating the metronome was as I was editing it! When using it I often just let it run if I get up to look for music or something, so I guess I have learned...

    Building Your Breath Control

    Max Schlossberg's "Daily Drills and Technical Studies" has many great and challenging exercises. But there is one that became a favorite of mine when I discovered how much it could help me improve my...

    He was my first British euphonium hero. His recording of La Belle Americaine was so good it was almost depressing, because I could not sound as "sprightly" as he did!
  16. Lyndon Baglin - Rondo from Mozart Horn Concerto No 4

    Euphonium players (me included) have often "borrowed" from Mozart, and even borrow from French horn works now and then. This lively Rondo works very nicely on euphonium IMHO, although it is a bit...

    That is a very nice price! Sterling makes a great euphonium, and 3.5k for a nice pro horn is a good catch for someone.

  19. Fred Dart Euphonium - Morceau Symphonique by Guilmant

    Here is the second installment on the Fred Dart series. This is one of my favorite solos and is a great way to show maturity as a player.
