Horn Practicing Tips

Andrew Hitz

Are you a horn player looking for some ideas for the practice room? Or maybe you have a horn student in your band who is looking for some help with how to get better?

There is a great website by two fabulous horn players and teachers, John Ericson and Bruce Hembd, called  Horn Matters. It is a horn resource filled with tips on just about everything horn related you can imagine.

Follow the link below to 10 pages worth of links to stories about practicing. They cover everything from warming up and transposing to focus in the practice room and tonguing.

This is a great resource for horn players and teachers of all ability levels!

By the way, for anyone who isn't familiar with Horn Matters, you should be.  It is one of the best online brass resources around and John and his colleague, Bruce Hembd, are great guys who are incredibly knowledgeable.
