This clinic presents innovative methods for linking brass student playing goals to repertoire demands through a combination of lecture & playing demonstrations. Fundamentals of air, embouchure, articulation & their essential intersection with repertoire will be discussed. Conductors, studio teachers, and brass students will benefit from these strategies for continuing growth from practice room to rehearsal hall.
