This is the installment version and you will be investing $18 weekly.

Although this course is 12 Weeks from start to finish, your subscription will be for 9 weeks and by the end of 9 weeks, you will have received the entire course.


I am very, very detailed and precise when it comes to working this book. Because of this, I allocate more days for some studies and less days for others.

This means that for some studies you will finish in as little as 5 days. Some studies in 10 days. One study in particular takes 20 days! Because of the way my digital delivery subscription service works, I cannot make the delivery lopsided or uneven. It has to be every 7 days, every 10 days, etc...

If I put 10 days that means you would be waiting and get behind on some studies. By putting 7 days or weekly, the next new study may arrive a few days early, but that is fine because at least you have it ready to begin working on when your time on the current study is complete.

Also, I am throwing you a bone: Do the math: 12 weeks x $18 vs. 9 weeks x $18

By the current 9 week delivery, I am also SAVING you some $$.

When you begin the course, I will include a reminder of how the weekly delivery of this course will work and possibly add some more details. 

Your take away is this: You will have received the entire 12 week course in 9 weeks and saved some money to boot!

Each week that you continue in the course, you will pay another $18. For any reason should you need to pause or discontinue, you can! Just cancel and that ends your involvement in this course. Easy and no risk at all.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Join or audition just about any local community band, concert band, brass band, jazz band, big band, or even a pit band for broadway. You will also be able to get involved in orchestra if that is your thing.
  • You will have gained confidence
  • Your music theory and ear training will likely be better than where you were before
  • Your range may be better than where you were before
  • You will enjoy a big brassy sound, great tone
  • You will have enough endurance to last through long rehearsals and performances
  • You will enjoy making music again and your instrument will be more often your friend rather than an enemy
  • Your technique will be at or near it's highest level ever. 
The question you should be asking is: "I wonder if I could get private lessons for $18 a week where I live?" Ummmm me thinks not! Well, maybe little bobby who is a music major or maybe even a recent graduate at the ripe old age of 22 or 23 might teach you for that amount, but...I doubt it. If little bobby does, you have to ask another question: "At age 23, how much professional teaching experience does he have?"
30 years? 10 years? 5 years? How about try 1 or 2 years. Yeah, that's right. Basically YOU will be Little bobby's guinea pig!

You do good. You improve. You keep going.
You don't improve. You don't like it. You stop and cancel the subscription.
Perfect for the simply doesn't get any more logical than this!
*It truly doesn't matter which brass instrument you play: TRUMPET, TROMBONE, FRENCH HORN, BARITONE, EUPHONIUM, TUBA. When it comes to getting back on your horn, the strategy and practice is the same for all brass players and is included in this course.
*End the typical frustration that most experience in the Herbert L. Clarke Technical Studies.
*This course gives you a strategy to get though it quicker and with more success.
*Each week has a video by me for you to watch. 12 Videos Lessons in All!
*I introduce which study, which exercise, then tell you EXACTLY how to practice including HOW LONG to practice each day! This is important because just starting at the beginning and trying to go in order to the end has spelled failure for most players.

*No etudes are worked on during this course.


There is some flexibility in practice time. Go at your own pace is the rule. However, the course does have structure so that you complete a particular study in a certain amount of days. Some studies require a week. Some require a bit more.

*The course also suggest the appropriate book for all instruments so whether you play trumpet, trombone, french horn, baritone, or tuba, the appropriate book will be suggested for you and exactly what exercises need to be practiced out of that particular book.

This is a very well thought out design and strategy for the aspiring brass musician!
