I noticed this course "High notes low notes and everything in between" advertised on <www.brassmusician.com>
Has anyone used it - is it a good course??
Thanks for any feedback that might come

It's kind of funny how you're asking for recommendations about a technique-improving product on a brass magazine site (i.e. the magazine-site itself is good enough to help you, but oh well). The program is VERY, VERY rudimentary. Specifically, it gives you tons of advice and helpful tips about warming up, tips about developing a practice routine, helpful "stuff" to know if you're going to take a week off from practicing (yikes!), and both paper-back (the "instruction manual") and electronic (video) resources. The "instruction manual" is actually a companion to the videos, and therefore the REAL product is the videos. Frankly, practicing out of the bible (i.e. Arban's studies) is more beneficial because this product is almost EXACTLY THE SAME (but more boring and unproductive, at least to me). It's up to you, but my strong opinion is that you shouldn't get it; stick to the Arban's (and if you don't have it, GET IT).
