Masterclass on DVD for trumpet and other brass

Front cover of DVD

Bert's Basic Brass

Bert’s Basic Brass is an interactive brass program on DVD.  It is a masterclass given by a well known brass teacher, Bert Truax. Truax teaching is based on his studies with James Stamp. On this DVD, Truax uses the wellknown exercise No. 3 from the James Stamp Warm-ups and Studies.

Truax recommend that you get the complete James Stamp Warm-ups and Studies available through BIM publications (www.editions-bim.com).

Bert Truax has done a very good job with this project and he is a pioneer in using the new DVD medium in brass pedagogy.  I hope he will continue and make more DVDs - perhaps one for more advanced use of James Stamps exercises.
