Julie Landsman Presents Caruso Tribute

Julie Landsman has created a web page, pdfs and videos describing the Carmine Caruso method, and has graciously made it available to the IHS for our website.

Juilie writes:

"I first met Carmine Caruso when I was in high school in Ardsley, New York in 1968. He taught  our high school band the basic exercises as warm ups for  our band rehearsals. We had a fantastic, award winning band! I have been practicing and teaching this method ever since.

"These exercises, when practiced correctly, help prepare your body to play music with more ease and refinement. Please enjoy these videos, free of charge. This is my way of honoring my great teacher, Carmine Caruso, and his  method, that has enriched our lives as instrumentalists."

The IHS is very grateful to Julie Landsman for creating this tribute to Carmine Caruso, for documenting his method for posterity,  and for making it available to all hornists to use and learn from. The Caruso tribute can be found under Multimedia in the main menu.
