Originally written to aid the Royal Marines Band Instructors for the Volunteer Bands of the Royal Navy, this book is a combination of key charts, a rough guide to fault finding and assessing trouble on mainstream woodwind instruments. There are also sections on advice about storing instruments and selecting a good repairer. With full colour photographic sections charting keys, pads and mechanisms on: Flute a Piccolo, Clarinet, Saxophone, Oboe a Cor-Anglais and the Bassoon, helping the teacher or instructor identify keys and pads relating to a woodwind instrument with a problem. This will greatly assist a repairer by saving a lot of time exploring to discover the problem, which, in turn, could have the effect of saving you money on the cost of a repair. This information will be of benefit to Woodwind Teachers, Heads of Instrumental Music and Band Instructors to use as a reference. There are notes in each section to highlight trouble spots with advice to help you find the right area and key names. If you are trying to explain a problem over the phone to a repairer a diagram of keys and pads can be invaluable. Books on 'Looking After Your Instrument' (and keeping it in good condition), written by the same author are also available from trafford.com on the Flute a Piccolo, Oboe a Cor-Anglais, Clarinet, Saxophone (includes Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Baritone) and Bassoon.Now, this may seem a little simplistic but when a player comes to me for example saying that they cannot play below low C on their saxophone there are two main causes for this, one quite straight forward and the other more involved in repair.
