A Section that Plays Together, Stays Together: Establishing a Culture of Brass Excellence

  • thumbnail for Ryan Gardner
  • The goal of all conductors is to have a brass section with excellent endurance, intonation, balance and blend. This is a challenging goal to achieve, but it is possible! The brass faculty from Oklahoma State University has pursued this goal through group daily fundamental routines and chamber music. Ryan Gardner (trumpet), Paul Compton (trombone) and Lanette Compton (horn) will share their ideas and materials for developing greater depth and quality in your brass sections.
