  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...

  6. 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!
  12. 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.

  15. Fred Dart Euphonium - Morceau Symphonique by Guilmant

    I tend toward either 2 or 3 turns out (usually 2), but I will probably experiment more this year as my chops are getting a little more stable. My more regular practice schedule since retirement is...

    I second both parts of that!

    Cleaning a compensating euphonium is very tricky. In the old days I broke countless "snakes" trying to get through all the twists while cleaning. Now I use a "power...

  24. FS: DON'T WAIT! Boosey & Hawkes Imperial Euphonium in Satin Silver

    I just saw this in stereo - both from a member's PM and from my daily eBay search. This is a VERY nice Imperial from the look of it, and it priced to sell.

    It has a medium receiver, valves look...
