Expanding on his last book, "Around The Horn," author and recording artist Walt Weiskopf has raised the bar again with Beyond The Horn, a new book co-authored by saxophonist Ed Rosenberg. Beyond The Horn highlights intervals of 3rds, 5ths, 6ths, 10ths, and introduces the concept of octave displacement. Studies and Exercises are in all 12 keys. The book concludes with 20 etudes that incorporate this new material.
The large 244 page book will add increasingly larger intervals to your vocabulary and open your ears as well. Also included are author's notes on how to practice the technically challenging material. Successfully taught at the famous Eastman School of Music for the past several years, this method will take you beyond your previously assumed technical limits. For all musicians looking for a new direction.
