Finally a video that takes a student from opening the case to playing a song. Includes: opening the case, parts of instrument, assembling instrument, proper breathing, forming the embouchure, producing a sound, holding the instrument, correct posture, basic theory, learning notes, playing a song, and basic maintenance. Excellent examples of instrument tone quality and technique are also included. Perfect for beginning students, students who are changing to another instrument, or as a refresher for players returning to the instrument after many years. Great to include in the instrumental rental package, or as a terrific gift to motivate and help the beginning student.
