"The essays in this remarkable volume go far beyond trumpet pedagogy, providing an exquisite portrait of the studio practices of one of the first full-time single-instrument wind faculty members in an American college or university setting. John's concern for educating the whole person, not just cramming for the job market, emanates from every page. This book showcases a teaching career that has become legendary."--James Scott, Dean of the College of Music, University of North Texas
"The principle that pervades my entire educational philosophy did not come from education or psychology classes; it did not come from the many sermons preached by my Dad and hundreds of other pulpiteers. It came from John Haynie's studio."--Douglas Smith, Mildred and Ernest Hogan Professor of Music, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"I read a book like this and I come out the other end asking, 'Why didn't I try this long before now?' All hail to John Haynie and Anne Hardin."-- Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451
"This book is a marvelous collection of essays on embouchure, breathing, tonguing, fingering, musicianship, intonation, equipment, habits, and mental discipline. The essays are written in a unique down-to-earth style, pedagogically sage and, at times, witty and humorous. . . . I have used so many of his suggestions with my own students that I feel like I have gone back to school and earned an additional college degree. His wisdom is inspiring!"--International Trumpet Guild Journal
"Private teachers in general, and trumpet players in particular will enjoy this book for what it is: a lifetime of wisdom to share with teachers and players."--The Instrumentalist
"This is a book like no other I have seen. . . . [Haynie's] approach indicates a trumpeter who is both humble about his own efforts and totally committed to creating complete musicians and people."--Mouthpiece
