  3. Accompanied Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    The famous Kopprasch etudes for horn (ca. 1830) are, like almost all etude collections, for horn alone. As useful as they are in developing technique, Kopprasch etudes in themselves are rather dry and mechanical as far as considering them as music is concerned. To add some life and depth to them, we have composed piano accompaniments to the first 34 etudes. These accompaniments provide some background in harmony and rhythm for the horn player, and should make the process of working on the originals much more musical and interesting; some may even be suitable for performance. The level of the accompaniments is intermediate - not for a beginner, but by no means virtuoso, so horn teachers with some level of piano skill will be able to play many of them. Learn More

  7. Duet Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    Duet Kopprasch makes the original etudes more palatable – even (dare we say it) fun by adding a social dimension to the etudes, the same way that team sports make exercise much more engaging than solitary workouts. There is also added musical interest as the original lines dance back and forth between the two parts. So grab your horn, a friend, and have fun! $9.99 Learn More
  8. Harmony Kopprasch-Agrill
    $9.99

    Based on the most popular all-time etude collection for horn, 60 Etudes by Georg Kopprasch, Harmony Kopprasch uses the original rhythms and meters, but applies them to a vastly more challenging array of scale and arpeggios types, chords, and keys. The player who knows the originals with their very limited scale types, chords, and keys can take their technique to the next level by revisiting the original pitches in HK in these contemporary harmonic contexts.

  10. Keys to Transposition
    $24.95

    Horn players need to transpose, yet until now, there has not been a complete method devoted to teaching this essential skill. This method begins by explaining why horn parts need to be transposed and then uses this historical information to provide the hornist with a concrete strategy to master transposition. After building skills through exercises, excerpts from the horn literature are presented for practical application. Helpful transposition tips, practice techniques, and musical advice enhance the musical examples. Learn More

  12. Preparatory Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    This new volume takes the spirit and general approach of the original and provides “stepping stone” etudes for young players by reducing the range and length of the originals, and occasionally making other adjustments to enable novice players to experience the material similar to the original Kopprasch etudes. Players who use this preparatory material will very likely be ready and able to tackle the original Kopprasch etudes much earlier and more easily than before. Learn More
