The performer's presentation of the recital was concerned with finding the most logical order in which to play the instruments, demonstrating technique on the trombone, and improving playing technique on the french horn, baritone and tuba in an attempt to improve the performer's quality of teaching. The performer sincerely believes that any effort put forth to improve the technique on more than a major instrument will improve teaching procedures on all instruments. It is the performer's intention through this report to describe (1) the problems he encountered with improving his technique on the french horn, baritone and tuba; (2) how these problems were overcome for the recital performance; and (3) how this information is related to the improved teaching of these instruments.
