“Grounded not only in practical experience but also in principles of education theory, the songs in this volume offer useful opportunities to sing through the horn. As we know from symphonies, movie soundtracks, concertos, operas, and solos, the horn is at its best when given a beautiful, lyrical solo. Playing and singing songs like these are the first step toward playing those solos ourselves. Sing and enjoy!” - Jeffrey Snedeker, Professor of Music, Central Washington University; Past President, International Horn Society
