Overview

First to be published in the series was The Art of French Horn Playing by Philip Farkas, now Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Music at Indiana University. In 1956, when Summy-Birchard published Farkas's book, he was a solo horn player for the Chicago Symphony and had held similar positions with other orchestras, including the Boston Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, and Kansas City Conservatory, DePaul University, Northwestern University, and Roosevelt University in Chicago. The Art of French Horn Playing set the pattern, and other books in the series soon followed, offering help to students in learning to master their instruments and achieve their goals.

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.

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.
