Horn Music Study
This Guide represents six levels of ability from beginner to professional. Players develop different strengths at different times: one player may have the range of a Level 6 but the tone and technique of a Level 3 player. Another might have a Level 6 tone and technique, but the range of a Level 3 player. Still another, through diligence and devoted practice might achieve an acceptable performance of a Level 6 piece, but lack many of the other skills such as sight-reading ability, or the extensive knowledge of repertoire and styles that a real Level 6 achievement requires.
The fact is, we can all benefit greatly from mixing up our practice routines to include selections from more than one level. Most professional players, in addition to practicing repertoire for their next recording or concert tour, also still practice tone building and scale exercises similar to what beginners must work on.
Horn Player's Study Guide does not
pretend to be all inclusive. The Guide
lists only a small portion of the
available methods, etudes, horn ensembles,
orchestra, band, chamber music and solo
repertoire for horn. Study of all such
material is important and should be
included in your daily practice routine.
Also, this Guide is not intended
to replace a private lesson teacher. There
is no book that can substitute for a
qualified teacher, one with the ability to
demonstrate and inspire, and the knowledge
to guide the student according to his/her
individual needs, desires and special
