The Ergobone saved my career

Thank you, Mr. Horton for your comment. In the interest of more knowledge, perhaps you could tell us a bit more about how the Ergobone saved your career. I'm in the process of acquiring a bass trumpet, which is at least as heavy as a trombone, if not more and all the weight is to the front. This is a good candidate for the Ergobrass.

All the best, John Tarr

Reading List

  • Brian Frederiksen: Arnold Jacobs: Song and Wind
    Part biography and part description of Jacob's teaching philosophy and teaching wisdom. I refer to this book when preparing breathing lessons for musicians.
  • Sam Pilafian & Patrick Seridan: Breathing Gym, The
    Interesting and useful breathing exercises. Some of the exercises may need to be modified for younger students.
  • Oliver Sachs: Musicophillia
    Enjoyable read on neurology and music.
  • Kristian Steenstrup: Teaching Brass, 2nd revised edition
    An Interesting read on the theory of playing and teaching brass. I found this book to be helpful in understanding things I already sensed, had been taught and discovered for myself. Includes interesting info on the teaching of Arnold Jacobs.
