Here is a set of 13 videos that I did in my shop, for Andreas Eastman and
Eastman Winds, and others that have been added and more will be added. So
please stop by every once in a while. I highly endorse the Eastman brand and
especially the highest quality of reeds, that great 52nd St. sax and the
fabulous new Haynes flutes which are the new standard of the flute market.

These videos are not a tutorial on the technique of woodwind playing, but
rather an introduction of thoughts about playing, that you might not have
considered, or discussed with a teacher. The earlier you can understand and
implement this information, the faster your development will be, because
your job of learning will be made easier.

Needless to say, these videos are only touching "the tip of the iceberg"
when it comes to all of the knowledge required to understand the art of
music, along with woodwind mouthpieces, clarinet barrels and bells , and
ligatures, the usual aftermarket additions for any advanced woodwind
musician. I think, however, that each video will give you enough new
information to improve your knowledge and development as a musician.

It's my hope that these videos will also act as a catalyst for action on
your part, in learning more about the subject matter proffered and of course
we would appreciate your business if the messages are meaningful to you.

These videos can be enhanced if you will take the time to read the articles
I have written and add to several times a year. Simply select the Article
tab on this website.
