The Boosey Brass Method is the first method to respond to the changing demands in teaching, and is designed to help make individual and group teaching easier, more integrated and more effective.
It provides everything you need for teaching music through the instrument. Its unique approach develops general musical skills through a programme of quality solo and ensemble music, with additional activities and an audio CD. Because the method is based on a clear curriculum, it provides an easy to use system for teaching – plus all the flexible resources you need for every situation, whether individual, group or mixed instrument teaching

A major resource for individual and group brass teaching.
Book 1 takes the student from 'absolute beginner' level up to about Grade 2 (equivalent to approx. 2 years tuition) and it explains technique and music reading throughout.
The 64-page book is divided into nine sections - a 'Basics' section plus eight stages. The 'Basics' pages contain information about your instrument and exercises to help you get started. Stages 1-8 teach you how to play the trumpet or cornet and how to make music come alive.
In addition to pieces to play, there are many different types of activities for you to do. Included are 2 CDs with performances, backing tracks and listening activities.
