Course Description

Our Advanced course builds on the foundations laid in the Beginner and Intermediate courses but goes further by developing your musicianship in many key areas. Lip technique, range, syncopation, new key signatures, arpeggios and vibrato techniques are all included in the course.

The course helps to improve your sight-reading and gives focussed studies (Etudes) to play to improve different aspects of your musical technique. You will also learn to play solo – one of the best feelings for any Cornet player. This ten-video course enables you to progress as a musician to the point where you will be playing Grade 8 level pieces and  be given the tools to continue your practise and development yourself.
