    Exellent...

    The methods and suggestions in this book are pinpoint accurate. Among the Horn world, I would have to say this is the most popular and reccomended book. The book varies to all subjects of music and gives great pointers. If you have any trouble playing the Horn, this book has something for you.

    The best method book on how to play the French Horn

    This book is great because it explains all the basics on playing the french horn. The section on warming up is very good, and the picture of the hand in a transparent bell is the only one of its kind that I know of. I recommend this book to all of my students.
