The only difference that can be identified between moderate athletes and the best is that great athletes think about their event all the time, mentally rehearsing every element, both separately and together, all the time.

And so it is with musicians. HOWARD SNELL, a former Principal Trumpet with the LONDON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA during the first part of his career, and latterly a CONDUCTOR, COMPOSER/ARRANGER and TEACHER of wide experience has developed an approach to playing which makes the most of individual talents.

Howard Snell's clearly explained PRACTICE and PROBLEM-SOLVING TECHNIQUES are evolutionary in nature, and not dependant on the spoken word but on the development of the student's listening abilities.

The principles he outlines are common to all musical performance.
