Product Details


Gain seemingly impossible facility beyond the horn's previously-considered limits. This is a huge, 248 page spiral-bound book with enough material to keep the serious student busy for many months. Expanding on his last book, Around the Horn, author and recording artist Walt Weiskopf has raised the bar again with Beyond the Horn, a new book co-authored by saxophonist Ed Rosenberg. Beyond the Horn highlights intervals of 3rds, 5ths, 6ths, 10ths, and introduces the concept of octave displacement.

Studies and Exercises are in all 12 keys. The book concludes with 20 etudes based on standard chord changes that incorporate this new material, so you have a solid reference for how and where to apply the techniques and concepts learned. This book will add increasingly larger intervals to your vocabulary and open your ears as well.

Also included are author's notes on how to practice the technically challenging material. Successfully taught at the famous Eastman School of Music for the past several years, this method will take you beyond your previously assumed technical limits. For all musicians looking for a new direction.
