18 CONTEMPORARY ETUDES FOR HORN 

Grade: 3-4

Price: $16.00 

 

Publisher: R.M. Williams 

The 18 etudes in this book are geared for intermediate horn students, and are arranged in progressive order through the grade 3 and 4 range. They are designed to help students gain fluency when playing music written in a mainstream contemporary idiom, but do not introduce any avant-garde or atonal techniques, which would be more appropriate for advanced students. There is no recording here, as study material never makes for especially interesting listening, but I have included a link to a few sample pages that horn players and teachers may peruse.  

This book is only available directly from the publisher, unless you can find it in a sheet music store or get one to order it for you. A link to the publisher's site is provided above.

HYMN TUNES FOR HORN 

There are more solos for horn and piano, as well as several duets for horn and other instruments, in a series called Hymn Tunes for Horn, located in the Church Music section on the Sacred Instrumental Music page. Equally useful in secular recitals as well as church services, most of these arrangements are titled with the name of the tune rather than that of a hymn which uses it. Hymn tunes usually have sometimes odd names that are not well-known except by church musicians. These titles are fine for concerts and recitals, but if performed in a church service, the name of a season-appropriate hymn that uses the tune should be substituted, as most people would recognize that more than the hymn tune name.The most familiar hymn titles sung to each tune are listed in its website entry and on the score.

TROMBONE

 T-BONE VARIATIONS

T-Bone Variations - Richard E Brown
00:00 / 00:00

Grade: 1

Duration: 2:00

Price: $5.00

 

Publisher: Grand Mesa Music

This short solo is very playable by first year trombone students. The theme lends itself to a couple of obvious variations that young students can immediately understand: that this is clearly the same melody, but changed in a certain way. So it not only gives them a fun solo that they can play during their first year, but teaches a little about variation form as well.
