Dr Downing's famous Doctor Books

Alto Clef is Easy!

Alto Clef is Easy!  - for TromboneThis delightful book by Sandra Downing makes learning the alto clef a pleasure. Orchestral trombonists are expected to be able to read all four clefs.

Whilst Alto Clef is not encountered as frequently as Bass and Tenor clefs, many major orchestral works are printed entirely in Alto Clef for 1st and 2nd tombones

Don't wait until you have to learn it - start now - and have fun as you learn.

There is no mystery to learning the alto clef.

If you can read one clef, you can read another. The secret is practice - but like anything in life, if you find it boring you give up. As a scientist, Sandra's brilliantly analytical mind always gets to the root of any problem - and boredom and formality are major problems in learning music.

Sandra's students will testify that her lessons are never dull and boring. Parents are amazed at the laughter coming from the music room - and even more amazed at the rapid progress.

In Alto Clef is Easy, Sandra takes you through beautiful melodies which are not only fun to play they are great to listen to. If you do as Sandra says, you will be playing alto clef immediately and naturally. In only a week or so you will wonder what all the fuss was about.

Alto Clef Is Easy is never boring or dull. Check the extracts below:
