The purpose of this course is to provide music educators with basic information concerning teaching methods and performance techniques for brass instruments, specifically trumpet and horn.

This course is an exploration of Western Art Music (often called “Classical” music). As musicians, we regard Western Art Music with respect to the traditions and developments in Europe beginning in the Medieval Ages (circa 1000AD). Our study will examine music from this time through the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and 20th Century, where we will develop an understanding of the musical principles, instruments, musical forms, and techniques associated with each of these historical phases. There are no prerequisites for this course and you are not expected or required to have any prior musical knowledge of the subject.
