    Tale of the Dragon - Paul Lovatt-Cooper

    For decades the Japanese people were plagued by a fearsome dragon, which would attack the villages and towns killing many people. The Emperor, fearing for his beautiful daughter's life, decreed that if anyone could defeat the dragon they could have his daughters hand in marriage.The music opens at the gates of the Emperors palace. Our hero, a young and brave soldier, returns with the army victorious. To reward his bravery, the soldier is summoned to the temple by the Emperor.On his way to the temple the young soldier meats the Emperors daughter, represented by the slow Soprano cornet. They fall in love and the young soldier accepts the challenge from the Emperor and embarks in his quest to rid the land of the dragon.The music continues at the foot of an erupting volcano, the soldier finds the dragon and they enter into battle. After a fearsome fight and summoning every last bit of his strength, the young soldier eventually manages to drive his sword into the dragon's heart.With the final closing chords of this piece representing the fatal blows from the victorious soldier's sword, the dragon collapses and our hero stands victorious.Tale of the Dragon is a descriptive piece that provides opportunities for soloists within the piece to stand at the front to perform. This high octane finale has plenty for all musicians and listeners to enjoy.

    Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 (allegro) - J.S Bach - John Abbott

    The "Brandenburg Concertos" were composed and dedicated to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721, however it seems now they were never actually played for him. This 1st movement has been kilfully arranged as a trio for Soprano Cornet and 2 Bb Cornets (solo cornet, and repiano). This is sure to test the strongest of players, utilising the soprano's high register and making work of the low register on the Bb cornets. As well as keeping the band entertained with running semi-quavers (and some wonderful intervals for the basses!!!) This certainly is a hard piece to perform for the three soloists, but its well worth the challenge.

    Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 (allegro assai) - J.S Bach - John Abbott

    The "Brandenburg Concertos" were composed and dedicated to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721, however it seems now they were never actually played for him. This 3rd movement has been kilfully arranged as a trio for Soprano Cornet and 2 Bb Cornets (solo cornet, and repiano). This is sure to test the strongest of players, starting with the famous trumpet opening. The Baritones, Euphoniums and Basses also play a very important role in this arrangement. This certainly is a hard piece to perform for the three soloists, but its well worth the challenge.

Each practice session is laid out day by day, exercise by exercise for maximum technical improvement. During the next 30 days you will improve: Breathing Lip Flexibility Single Tonguing Finger Dexterity The Bootcamp will only require a small amount of extra time on top of your normal practice regiment. All you will need is a metronome and your instrument. It does not matter if you are grade 1 or grade 8+ this program will improve your technique. Practice Until Failure If you do not practice until you fail, you are not pushing your technique to its limit. Whether it be squeezing the last drop of air out of your lungs in a breathing exercise, or completing a tonguing exercise until your tongue is completely exhausted, the harder you push yourself the more progress you will see during the 30 days. Taking The Tests Take all 4 tests on day 1. Try to push yourself and reach the highest level possible. There over 20 levels that you can achieve on each test. Start each test from the beginning, playing each exercise at the stated tempo markings before moving on. Exercise 1 corresponds to levels 1 - 5, one level for each tempo written. Levels 6 - 10 are from Exercise 2, 11 - 15 Exercise 3 and 16 - 20 Exercise 4. If you reach level 20, continue changing the tempo on Exercise 4 until you reach failure. Add 1 level for every extra tempo marking completed. Make note of the level you achieve for each test, this will be needed for your comparison at the end of the 30 days. Once you have taken the tests simply follow the calendar and complete the set exercises each day. The weekend practice sessions ask you to repeat the exercises from earlier in the week. This gives you a second chance to push your technique further on each exercise. The Final Test Complete the 4 tests again on day 30 and compare your results. Good luck and enjoy the next 30 days!
