Lip Slurs for Horn Thursday, June 28, 2012

Meredith Music Publications’ new book, Lip Slurs for Horn by Howard Hilliard is a great discovery!

It is a very comprehensive approach to the Horn warm-up and covers the whole gamut of what players of all levels will need to develop flexibility, range, lip trills and endurance. Starting with sets of lip slurs for the beginning player the book creates a tremendous foundation and is one of the few books around that provides increasing challenges for the intermediate and advanced player.

The best part of the book is that all of the exercises are refreshingly musical.  It’s a pleasure to use as both a player and a teacher and will become as standard to the Horn curriculum as Arban, Clarke and Schlossberg are to the Trumpet.
