Reviewer: John Sininger from Greene, NY USA
I was very pleased to find this book listed with Amazon.com.
Having studied the trumpet at Ithaca College with Professor Mueller
this book was a natural link to the study and teaching of brass
instruments for me. Photographs of Mr. Phillips, Mr. Davidson, and
other prominent orchestral musicians demonstrating embouchure and
posture are valuable to teachers who wish to help young people
learn their instruments. The short history of brass instruments, the
fingering/slide charts in this book are clear and accurate. The
arrangements of hymns and Mueller's own composition at the end of
the book are alone worth the cost of purchase of this reference
This book is representative of the life of the late Herbert C. Mueller,
in that it is direct, without fluff, and practical.
