The Art of Brass Playing by Phillip Farkas
The Art of Brass Playing is a treatise on the formation and use of the brass player’s embouchure. It includes sections on the embouchure’s function, mouthpiece placement, moist versus dry lips, the lip aperture, articulation, mouthpiece pressure, and breath control. A must-have for all brass players, this includes photos of the embouchures of Adolph Herseth, Philip Farkas, Edward Kleinhammer, and Arnold Jacobs, among others. This book has become a standard in brass technique classes and at conservatories everywhere.
