    Like we say here in the South, "Whatever cranks your tractor." I played on a 4-in-line Conn for decades, and since '12 I've been playing a 3+1 comp. I can go back and forth almost without thinking....

    Sometimes when I'm working Vinings' Range Songs, I'll play thru an octave down first, and then as written. I get a double benefit -- working the low range (and I love playing low :D ) and getting a...

    I asked, but I'm pretty sure it's excerpts from different pieces.

    Edit: Confirmed. Algirdas says the difference is in where the arrangements were made. In European arrangements the euph parts...

    Has anyone ever done a compilation of well-known, public-domain tunes with the melody in both clefs, so that the student can teach him/herself the new clef by having the old one to fall back on?

    I played with all three plates on my "Schiller" for about six months, and then took them off, and couldn't tell any difference. I didn't do this kind of analysis on it, tho.

    It was, and I still like to take it out and play it. What's really nice about that edition (Adam Frey's) is that the piece itself is pretty vanilla, but Adam includes a small tutorial on...

    I learned that piece for the IET Geezer Group solo competition in 2016. At home, I recorded the accompaniment, but instead of using Finale's piano sound, I used a harpsichord. The accompaniment...

    In a slow passage, if it's in tune, go for it, especially if it makes things easier.

    In a fast passage, I would use it, if it makes the fingerings easier. I may catch some flak for this, but I...

    Why, yes, sir, I play the euphonium,
    Occasion'ly called baritonium.

    It sounds very mellow;
    And it's prettier than a trombonium.
