Simple Studies for Beginner Brass is a comprehensive course for the early stages of brass playing. The 38 short studies - all of them newly composed by John Miller - are arranged progressively, and each one poses a fresh technical challenge. The collection as a whole covers the entire spectrum of basic technique, while being coupled with a great deal of musical interest. An appendix contains a selection of scales and arpeggios. This book is suitable for any brass player who reads from the treble clef.
