In three books, Lucien Thévet (1914-2007), a virtuoso Horn player of his day, provides 148 pages of detailed, progressive studies and exercises for the Horn. The first volume of Complete Method of Horn is essential to all Horn players seeking to improve their technique on the instrument.
Thévet's book focuses on elements including scales, chromaticism, intervals, arpeggios, diligence, articulation, tone, vibrato, dynamics, ornamentation and extended technques, among other musical aspects. Moreover, Complete Method of Horn also contains plenty of exercises. Significantly, Complete Method of Horn firstly seeks to address tube-lengths, fingering combinations and tuning-slides so that when the student progresses to Horn notation, the sound is not lost. With notes in French, English, German and Spanish, this Thévet book is versatile and crucial to the progress of any Horn player.
