dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to construct teaching strategies for selected skills and concepts in brass-instrument performance. The skills to be studied initially consisted of breathing, embouchure, sound production, and articulation; after research and analysis the skill of posture Haas added. The selected concepts were those identified by various brass authors as representing the elements of classical style; namely, "sostenuto," "accent," "staccato," and the "short accent" or "inarcato." While the brass authors also indicated the importance of tempo and dynamics to classical style, the latter were seen by the writer to be self-explanatory to a far greater extent than the primary elements named.Teaching strategies for the selected skills and concepts were constructed by utilizing relevant results of researchers' studies in motor skill acquisition and conceptual learning. These strategies were combined with the skills and concepts of the study to yield empirically-based methodologies to be used in beginning brass instruction. en_US
