The Daily Drill for Horn Players, by Daniel Grabois
“These drills are little patterns of notes that repeat in different keys. Play them every day, and make sure to play them WELL. Take the time to Build good technique into your playing.
Most of the drills focus on the low register. The entire set of drills takes about an hour to play but, after a short break, you’ll have plenty of
endurance left for a good day of practicing other musical material.
By integrating these drills into your daily practice, you will gain the technique necessary to play with a beautiful sound, wonderful control, and a beautifully expressive voice.
This book is dedicated to Meg and Charlie, and to all of my students.” - March 26, 2020
