Format: Spiral-bound
I use this text extensively in my woodwind class. The double reed sections are excellent. The saxophone section is fine, but a bit short on information. There are several inaccuracies in the flute section (scientific, historical), and our flute professor disagrees with the information on embouchure and technique. The clarinet section is also weak. The author has some strange ideas on teaching embouchure and other skills, and there are inaccuracies within this section as well.

I use this and have students make corrections and notes in their copies of this book since there is nothing better available. I would like to see an updated version with corrections made and more consistent organization of material for each of the woodwinds. I would also like to see the illustrations revised so that they are more accurate. (I like a lot of the information in the Westphal book that is its competitor, but the Westphal is dense reading and very, very old.)

Update: December 2010. Don't teach woodwind pedagogy at the moment, but I did replace this book with readings from various sources when I was teaching it in the spring. I was tired of the limitations of this book. There are two newer books on the market I recommend that might meet your needs:

Wind Talk for Woodwinds (2009)
A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching Woodwind Instruments
Mark C. Ely and Amy E. Van Deuren
Oxford University Press
Wind Talk for Woodwinds: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching Woodwind Instruments

Format: Spiral-bound
Woodwind players are much like trumpet players' about their mouthpieces, or violinists' about their strings....each has an opinion. The separate authors who write the wwodwind chapters, also have their opinions, a few tricks and techniques that are not mainstream, but clearly would work for most people. The best Woodwind Technque book on the market.

This book really does have everything an aspiring educator needs to know about each of the woodwind instruments. A must-read for all music education majors.
