» » Wind Talk for Woodwinds: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching Woodwind Instruments
Wind Talk for Woodwinds provides instrumental music teachers, practitioners, and students with a handy, easy-to-use pedagogical resource for woodwind instruments found in school instrumental programs. With thorough coverage of the most common woodwind instruments - flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, and bassoon - the book offers the most topical and information necessary for effective teaching. This includes terminology, topics, and concepts associated with each specific instrument, along with teaching suggestions that can be applied in the classroom. Be sure to look to the back of the book for a "Practical Tips" section, which discusses common technical faults and corrections, common problems with sound (as well as their causes and solutions to them), fingering charts, literature lists (study materials, method books, and solos), as well as a list of additional resources relevant to teaching woodwind instruments (articles, websites, audio recordings). Without question, Wind Talk for Woodwinds stands alone as an invaluable resource for woodwinds!

This is an outstanding work that I am using as a college textbook for a class on Woodwind Techniques. The information is thorough, accurate, practical and well organized. It goes into enough detail on each woodwind instrument, but not so much that you get bogged down in rhetoric. Congratulations to the authors on publishing a book that has countless uses for teachers at all levels. I just wish something like this was around when I was in college.

This was the required text for my woodwinds class for my Music Ed Major. It was a typical music text book: Informative, best used for reference not as reading.

This is an excellent resource for any woodwind tutor that finds him or herself tutoring something other than their main instrument. It could also be useful for music educators and/or new junior/training band conductors who are looking for something to help develop an understanding of the general characteristics of how woodwind instruments 'behave' (because, as we all know, in a lot of cases they don't!!).

Wow!!!! What a wealth of knowledge. I'm a music instructor and I bought this book based on some of the ratings. I have to say that this book lives up to them. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to get some very detailed information about the woodwind instruments.

This is a concise and accessible manual for all things relevant to teaching instrumental music. As a middle and high school band director, the visualizations assist both teacher and student to more fully understand abstract concepts. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to any teacher who works with woodwind instruments on a regular basis.
