Beginner Method Series
Euphonium/Baritone: Lesson Book 1
Lesson Book One introduces a color-coded tablature (Color Fingerings) to help students learn the slide positions of the euphonium/baritone and apply them to notes in the Middle Range. The Middle Range starts with fourth line F and the rest of the notes are presented in descending chromatic order ending with B on the second line of the staff. Students will play melodies and exercises that teach them the basics of playing the euphonium/baritone and introductory music concepts.
Euphonium/Baritone: Lesson Book 2
Lesson Book Two will introduce notes of the Low Range. Students will learn about slurs, eighth notes and scales. The Low Range begins with the note Bb/A# notated below the staff, and the remaining notes of the Low Range are presented in a descending chromatic order and end with the note E notated below the staff. For each lesson the notes of the Low Range will be introduced relative to the notes of the Middle Range.
Euphonium/Baritone: Lesson Book 3
Lesson Book Three will introduce notes of the High Range. Students will learn about 3/4 time, dotted quarter notes, the harmonic minor scale and etudes. The High Range begins with the notes Gb/F# notated on the staff, and the remaining notes of the High Range are presented in an ascending chromatic order and end with the note Bb/A# that is also notated on the staff.
