This book was designed for use in a one or two semester heterogeneous college woodwind methods class or as a quick reference manual for school band and orchestra directors. It provides concise descriptions including instrument similarities and differences, breath support, reed adjustment and transposition. Includes:

Instrument assembly, embouchure, hand position and articulation
Carefully detailed fingering charts with clearly detailed primary fingerings and explanation of selected alternate fingerings and trill fingerings
Progressive musical exercises/compositions, often harmonized, to allow students to learn new fingerings at an even pace while enjoying the ensemble sound
Advanced concepts: alternate fingerings, vibrato, flicking, and multiple articulation
Trouble shooting for mechanical or reed problems, repair and maintenance
Recommendations for selecting: Reeds, Mouthpieces & ligatures, Instruments, Method books and study literature, Constructing a basic woodwind “toolbox”
