Quick Overview

Chops: The Ultimate Guide to Building Tone, Technique and Flexibility is a thorough method for brass instruments written by Frank Williams, one of the most respected brass pedagogues in the world. These exercises are not glamorous, but they are the vegetables that all brass players must eat in order to improve their tone, technique and flexibility. This is a one-of-a-kind collection of exercises and insights into mastering the skills necessary to be a solid player on a brass instrument. Williams’ students are living proof that these exercises work, students, high school bands, award-winning drum and bugle corps, current composers, band directors, and professional musicians, including Mike Roylance, tubist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. With diligent work, Chops will help current students succeed too.
