Modern low brass instruments-trombone, euphonium, and tuba-have legions of ancestors, cousins, and descendants in over 500 years of history. Prominent scholar and performer Douglas Yeo provides an accessible reference guide that addresses a broad range of relevant topics and brings these instruments to life with clear explanations. Brief biographies of many path-changing people highlight their influence on instrument development and use. The book's inclusive scope also recognizes many artists whose important contributions have been overlooked in the mainstream telling of music history. Extensive illustrations by Lennie Peterson provide insight into many of the entries.
An Illustrated Dictionary for the Modern Trombone, Tuba, and Euphonium Player is a unique, single source for low brass players and teachers of all levels and serves as a quick and accessible reference guide for personal, high school, and college libraries and studios.
