3-Valve Fingering Chart

3-Valve Fingering Chart

One of the greatest paradoxes of old school drum corps in our area, not just Arbella, is that the quality of the programs were so astounding – and yet virtually none of the brass players could read music!  And, hardly any of them ever continued playing after they left drum corps.  Such a waste! These days it would be impossible to put on a program of any kind without music-reading musicians, which just goes to show the love and commitment that both the members and the staff had at the time to help these kids become such great players!  Brass instructors had to be creative, and the members had to be committed to practice practice practice.  The drive to win competitions helped too!

Here is a fingering chart that will work with all 3-valved instruments.  Print a copy to keep in your music binder and start committing it to memory!
