New Page: A Mellophone Starter’s Guide

It’s July, and for high school and college bands, that means marching band.

For French horn players, that means it’s time to (temporarily) put down the concert horns and pick up a mellophone or marching horn.

Since there aren’t many resources available for mellophone players, I’ve decided to put together a page which can fill this gap. These include mouthpiece recommendations, warm-ups, fingering charts, and more.
