2017-2018 All-State Etudes (+Recordings and Tips) 2


It’s almost August, which means that it’s time to start preparing for All-State (once band camp is finished, that is)!

To make things a bit easier, hopefully, I’ve made recordings of the two French horn All-State/All-District etudes at their recommended tempos with some practice tips!

The two etudes this year are from the same books as last year, Kopprasch and Shoemaker, and they are fairly straightforward in their different challenges.

If you’ve been working on your scales, arpeggios, dynamics, slurs, and articulation, then these etudes shouldn’t present too much of a challenge. If not, though, make sure you get started soon!

Check out the etude recordings and some practice tips here.
