20 Difficult Etudes for the Horn's Middle Register are designed for players of all levels, especially advanced players, to solidify their tone and singing approach in the middle register. In these twenty etudes, you will find awkward leaps through uncomfortable register changes, annoyingly sudden dynamic changes, legato lines through the mushiest ranges, trills and tremolos, aggressively loud passages where the instrument fights back, and much more to challenge and extend your skills and muscianship.
