In this college textbook, Whitener (music, Rutgers U.), a trumpet player, describes brass instruments--the trumpet, cornet, horn, trombone, baritone, euphonium, tuba, and others--and techniques of playing them. He details the anatomy of a mouthpiece, summarizes the historical development of brass instruments, and reviews techniques including tone production and position. He also discusses elementary players, instrument care, and important information for conductors. Appendices contain a list of manufacturers and fingering charts. A CD features recordings and exercises. This edition has been expanded and revised.
