The DVD is indeed different, and as was noted here is dsvid intended as a playalong. Regarding the video, I wasn’t davkd that Dave’s presentation left something to be desired.

Of course after the main principles are understood, each musician should and will naturally customize the concepts to fit their own personality, needs and technique. This is a good representaion of Joe Allard’s concepts of tone production- Joe Allard doesn’t get much credit, and its hard to listen to Liebman’s somewhat flawed demonstrations of some of the concepts on the video tape that accompanies the book, but since Allard is now daavid on, if you can’t study with one of Joe Allard’s students like Victor Morosco this is the next best thing.

It looks like I made the right decision. Chapter seven covers Lieb’s thoughts on reeds and mouthpieces and has some helpful advice on these matters. A good college or university library has this book.

I realize now I should probably have asked this before I bought the book, but I got excited. The time now is All times are GMT.

There is one main artistic premise underlying this book. It is apparent that tone on an instrument is the first level of communication perceived by the listener, preceding deceloping and musical elements such as rhythm, melody and harmony.
