The twenty-seven pieces in this collection are carefully graded for technical and musical development. The wide variety of styles range from Renaissance dances to a modern jazz suite. The pieces can be grouped together to form unaccompanied suites. In private practice the pieces will provide many appropriate technical challenges but their melodic nature also makes them ideal for unaccompanied concert performance.
Featuring Melody includes elements especially for the F horn. These include use of the natural horn, elementary hand stopping and alternative low notes for the more advanced player. These are introduced and explained within the book.
