The raison d'etre for a new textbook (Brass Playing...) in a field which has been served by many superb works over the years arises from the conviction that a distinct need exists for an approach to modern trumpet-playing that carefully articulates what the true virtuosos of brass instruments have all known but possesses a rare ability fo carefully interpret the art of brass-playing and to take the mystery out of successful brass study, he was urged by many of his fellow professional players to put down in written form what he has been so successfully transferring to his students over the years.

  • August 04, 2012 brass no harder than deep breathing

    Claude Gordon has produced a wonderful text of easy to follow directions for the brass student. Insights into whole body breathing and emphasis on tongue position control of pitch and tone as well as articulative function highlights our need to emphasise air movement as a priority. All my students have...

    gained significant progress and understanding of air by the use of this text.

    I would never expected a 10€ book could help to play a brass instrument so much! It finally taught me how to play in the HIGH register with ease! I highly suggest this book (alongside the Systematic Approach to Daily Practice from the same Claude Gordon)!

  • January 20, 2007 Claude Gordon explains it ALL!

    "Brass Playing Is No Harder Than Deep Breathing" puts into text form all of Claude Gordon's teaching. Founded securely upon the teaching given to him by the great Herbert Clarke, Mr. Gordon explains how all the top virtuosos really play. No gimmicks or hype here. Concise and to the...

    point, it is set forth in an understandable manner. All brass players have much to gain from this valuable book and all his other great books!
