Designed for beginning buglers and those who already play the trumpet or another brass instrument, this book addresses four major skills necessary to master the bugle: tone development, tongue technique, the smooth change of tones, and breath control. Daily exercises are included for the development of good tone, rapid single tonguing, double and triple tonguing, strength in the upper register, lip flexibility, and agility on the bugle. Helpful diagrams illustrate proper embouchure and lip positioning. The instruction includes the basic rudiments of music and everything you need to know about the bugle to start playing. The author also offers his advice on finding and choosing a bugle. The techniques and exercises in this book prepare the bugler to play the bugle calls in Infantry Bugle Calls of the American Civil War.
