Teaching Woodwinds: A Guide for Students and Teachers is a comprehensive resource perfectly suited for university woodwind technique classes, band directors needing woodwind details, or anyone looking for in-depth information on how to play and teach the flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon or saxophone.

Teaching Woodwinds is the only resource of its kind: a book and a web site. The book contains playing exercises for each instrument, group exercises in score form, and fingering and trill charts. The web site contains information about how to play each instrument including sub-chapters on getting started, technique, intonation, tone and much more, and offers over three hundred full color images, 130 videos, audio files, PDF downloads, PowerPoint/Keynote quizzes, and hundreds of links. When you purchase the book you also receive an access code that allows entry into the Teaching Woodwinds web site.
