Quarter Tone Manual for French Horn by Daniel Grabois. $17.00
Quarter Tone Manual introduces players and composers to a logical system for practicing, performing, notating, and composing works for horn with quarter tones. Useful for both existing works and future works, this manual relies on works in the literature but departs from accepted notations and pedagogy to develop a more intuitive system. Comprised of 17 annotated and progressive etudes, Performers and composers alike will benefit from the thoughtful treatment of a lesser known method for the horn.
