The Arizona State University Horn Studio
The Kopprasch Zone
Georg Kopprasch was a relatively minor player and teacher of the early nineteenth century he but did have a vision of the future of horn technique and acted upon it. The resulting etudes are timeless classics that have been passed from teacher to student by generations of hornists, an essential teaching material for horn (and brass) teachers worldwide. Love them or hate them, they are practical and effective etudes; it is in this spirit that these teaching related materials are presented.
