  2.   Solo Studies for the Healthy Hornist for Solo Horn (2022)

    Starting at: $10.00

    This collection: Solo Studies for the Healthy Hornist contains ten solos of varying styles. Specifically written for the younger student in mind, the studies in this book will be interesting and challenging to more advanced players as well. When I retired from Western Illinois University in 2018, the focus of my teaching changed. No longer was I working with graduate students-or even undergraduate students who were doing more advanced projects on Wagner Tuba or the Natural Horn; many of my students, then, were in the younger years of high school or junior high school. So, even though I was older, I was spending more time with younger students. So, as I was spending more time teaching these younger students, I became more attuned to their activities in band, dance, and various athletic pursuits. As a result, let me give special thanks to these students who provided inspiration and test runs of these solo studies: Noah, Ernesto, Jack, Elena, Emily, Anabelle, Lorelei, Brooks, and Carter. Their energy and imagination have been an inspiration for these Solo Studies. Learn More

  5. 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

  9. French Horn Players Guide to the Blues and Beyond by Jeffrey Agrell
    $15.00

    French Horn Player’s Guide to the Blues (and Beyond) is a new look at how horn players can get in on the joys and benefits of creating their own music and at last take part in the most influential musical genre of the 20th century, the blues. The blues is an aural art, but this method uses notation as a springboard to (paradoxically) getting free of dependence on notation. Players will learn about the structure of the blues and will learn to solo and create bass lines and accompaniments. Players may learn on their own, with a teacher, or with friends. Learn More
  10. Horn Technique-Agrell
    $19.99

    Horn Technique by Jeffrey Agrell is a comprehensive resource for teachers, and a combination road map and gold mine of information for serious students. Above all, it encourages the reader/player to combine the book’s approach with what they already do, and, fueled by curiosity and imagination, to use the book as a springboard to make new discoveries about the best ways to master this ancient and amazing instrument. A detailed, thoughtful look at ways old and new to get from one note to another, plus many illustrated suggestions about the most efficient ways to teach the instrument to students at any level. Learn More
  11. 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
  13. Rhythm Kopprasch by Jeffrey Agrell
    $9.99

    Based on the most popular all-time etude collection for horn, 60 Etudes by Georg Kopprasch, Rhythm Kopprasch uses the original Kopprasch etude’s pitches, but applies them to a vastly more challenging array of rhythms, meters, accents, and styles.
