After 2 long years, it's finally here!


Band Orchestration - Volume 3: Brass is the long-awaited next addition to my textbook series on composing for the wind band. This book delves deep into the brass instruments in a way never before tackled by any orchestration text. At over 400 pages in length, it proves to be the most comprehensive book one brass scoring ever written. Easily readable, this book takes a look at both modern and historical aspects of brass instruments so that both the composer and the conductor can better understand these instruments. Like Volume 2: Woodwinds, this book is also part encyclopedia covering every possible brass instrument that one may encounter in a score as well as focusing on regional variations of the instruments.
