  • thumbnail for Raquel Rodriquez

The session will focus on fundamentals aspects that are important to all brass players and how the use of “turn-of-the century” solos can aid in the practice of these essential elements. Participants will leave the session with ideas that can be implemented for immediate improvement with their students back home.
