The purpose of this project was to provide a pedagogical resource for students and teachers to utilize when preparing six standard formative pieces from the euphonium repertoire. The guided practice sections are written in plain English with several instances of first person writing to explain certain concepts in a less formal way. This was done so that any teacher, regardless of level could help a younger, more inexperienced student. In addition, the sections of guided practice were written to help those teachers who may or may not be intimately familiar with the works chosen. The recording was designed to present the music in current published format, with no improvisation by the soloist. The solos that were chosen are either college preparatory pieces, or formative works for the younger collegiate musician. All of the pieces included are published, and as of September 2010, available for purchase. The works included are: Six Studies in English Folk Song, by Ralph Vaughan Williams, ed. Paul Droste, Introduction and Dance, by J. Edouard Barat, ed. Glenn Smith, Andante et Allegro, by Joseph- Guy Ropartz, ed. Shapiro, Sonata for Unaccompanied Euphonium (or Trombone), by Fred L. Clinard, Jr., Suite for Baritone, by Don Haddad, and Andante and Rondo, by Antonio Capuzzi, ed. Philip Catelinet.
