The Claude Gordon Method
The Claude Gordon method will take the mystery and frustration out of brass playing for both the amateur and the professional.  You will learn how to play correctly, utilizing the seven natural elements of brass playing: the Wind Power, the Tongue, the Wind Control, the Lips, the Muscles of the Lips and Face, the Fingers of the Right Hand, the Left Hand. You will learn to use these in a natural manner, the way they were meant to work, within the forces of nature.  When you play your instrument easily, then you make great music!
