Described as “ the best, simplest, and sanest approach I have yet encountered” by John Wallace, Torbjörn Hultmark’s Method takes a fresh and straightforward approach to helping players develop tone control across their range. In this new edition for tuba, Hultmark has been joined by leading freelance player and teacher Jonathan Rees to specially adapt the method for tuba players.
This method is for anyone from elementary to advanced who wants to learn to play the better. Some exercises and studies require a significant level of skill but most can be adapted to suit almost every level and every stage in a player’s development.
The exercises have all come about through a desire to find solutions, or sometimes just a different angle, to particular aspects of tone control, be it breathing, articulation, range or stamina, i.e. the essential basic tone-production techniques required in order to learn to master these wonderful but sometimes also rather awkward beasts: brass instruments!
