    Sound Models

    Below are links for each band instrument so that you can hear your instrument when it is played well.  Listen to the clip often and try to get the tone in your mind's ear. Try to come as close as you can to that sound as you practice. Although it will take time to for you to develop that sound, having it in your ear will make it possible as you practice daily.
