Useful book, but a dictionary, not a treatise, a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z.
I was somewhat skeptical when I purchased the hard copy One review said it was small they might have underestimated this book is tiny.
However, it fits wonderfully in my purse as it is scarcely larger than my wallet.
HOWEVER this tiny book is packed with very useful AND very accurate information.
I purchased it because sometimes I compose or arrange for instruments I don t normally do on a regular basis, and I am sometimes unsure For example, the slide positions on the trombone just where do those partials begin, and where does the tenor and bass trombone differ The harp I have written extensively for this instrument, but it is always good to keep up with current or alternate practices that I might not have learned.
Strings this book covers the gamut of techniques.
IF you are a thoughtful music professor, I recommend you require this book for your class rather than one of those 100 books, and fill in the broad scope with your lectures.
IF you are a student, go along with what your professor requires, but carry this tiny book with you at all times Nessa
