My favorite etude books was created by Scott Miller
In response to the survey on favorite etude books, there are a few I really like even after 30 years of playing them. In addition to Reynold's classic 48 Etudes (some of the slower ones make very nice recital and audition pieces)and Kreutzer transcriptions, I also like "Belloli 8 Etudes" and recently purchased "Charateristic Etudes" (both High and Low books) by Marty Hackleman. I particularly like using Belloli for maintaining endurance and accuracy while Hackleman's books are great for expanding and challenging one's range.

My 2 personal favorites are the"Preparatory Melodies to Solo Work for French Horn" by Max Pottag and the "Etudes for Modern Valve Horn" by Felix de Grave. Both of these books offer a very wide range of etudes, from the fast and very technical to the slow and very melodic. I especially enjoy the slow melodic etudes. They allow me to express the emotions that I am feeling and give great satisfaction. I think the best series of books is the Rubank series. From the "Beginning" book to the "Supplemental" book they offer a student a great set of books to advance with. My personal favorite beginning book is the "Marvin Howe Method for Horn". My dad taught me out of this book and I have used it with just about every beginning student I've ever heard. After Marvin's death it was very hard to find the book for a while. Fortunately, it is now available through Randall Faust. There are many other books I enjoy but these are my favorites.

My favorite etudes are of course the 48 and the 16 from V Reynolds, the 13 Estudes from Koetsier, the Pauline Oliveros Interval Etudes and a few from the J. Falk Atonal Etudes, for last my own etudes, that will be published soon.

I must say that it is a tie between Gallay and Kling. I spent two years doing nothing but Kopprasch and was elated when I found out that something else existed.Just as elated as I was when I found out that there were other violin etudes other than Kruetzer(and twinkle, twinkle little star in the 1000 suzuki variations):lol:
