These days you'll find exceptional general instruction books for every kind of brass instrument you can name, and that most certainly includes the English horn. Feel free to browse this section and see for yourself. Before we look at an option, let's touch a bit on the English horn itself. Originating in the 1700s, the English horn is a double reed instrument that's similar to the oboe, but pitched to F instead of C, making it a perfect fifth lower. It's also larger than the oboe in size and produces a darker tone. Many famous pieces have also been written on the English horn, including a solo in Symponie Fantastique by Berlioz. The very fact that you've decided to make the English horn your instrument of choice means you have very discerning music tastes. For that reason, we think you'll be more than happy with the compositions found in KJOS Tradition of Excellence: Technique & Musicianship Eb Horn book. KJOS is well known in the brass instrument world for their music education materials, and this instruction book is no exception. In fact, this collection is designed specifically for musicians who have completed a second year of study in any method. You'll learn arpeggios, thirds and scales; melodious etudes and articulation; and even full-band chorales in 16 major and minor keys. Whether you're learning the English horn on your own or with a group, Tradition of Excellence: Technique and Musicianship is ideal for ear training, sight reading and for speeding up your playing progression. Like any musical instrument, the early learning stages are always the most challenging, but you'll find it gets easier the longer you play. This also applies to the English horn, and by going with the general English horn instruction book like the ones highlighted above, you'll be sure to impress plenty of music lovers in the audience at your next in-class performance or recital.
