    Thumbs up French Horn Tutorial by Terry Dwyer

    Terry Dwyer has written a tutorial for the GPO French Horns.

    http://www.garritan.com/tutorial/GPO...nTutorial.html

    The French Horn plays an important part in the orchestra and it has the widest range out of any brass instruments. It's one of the most beautiful and most called for instruments in the orchestra.

    In this tutorial, Terry discusses details about the instrument, about blending and muting, setting up horns in GPO, writing for horns, horn styles and much more.

    Terry has become our resident professor of music and has written tutorials for Harp, Organ, Harpsichord, Scoring for Woodwind, Tuned Percussion and now French Horns.

    Thank you again Terry for another fine tutorial and sharing yourknowledge with us.

    Gary Garritan

    Thanks Terry, I can't wait to add this to my tutorial PDF collection.

    @Sean; the best brass instrument is in fact the bass trombone. Those lovely growls, and 'blats'.... I'm in heaven.

    Awesome Terry and thank you Gary for bringing us another educational tutorial especially on the French Horn.
    The French Horn was one of my favorite instruments to learn during college. Although, not enough time spent on the instrument, it didn't take long to learn to appreciate the complexities of this instrument. Just forming the proper embouchure was enough on the little tiny mouthpiece! God, I thought the trumpet was small.
    This will make for a nice read this evening.
    My compliments!

    No can he write on on THE BIG BOOMY BASS DRUM?

    Thank you very much indeed for your most generous contribution. A brilliantly produced effort, although some of the illustrations don't seem to be loading at the moment. A wonderful tutorial for the collection!

    Respect,

    To bad it cannot be printed with graphics and manuscript so it can be studied off line :-( EJ

    The sax is actually a woodwind reed instrument. If it were strictly a brass instrument it would be the best instrument in that category, no contest.
