Welcome to the International Journal of Music

Arthur Zanin, Editor in Chief
Eric Anderson, Editor

We are so excited to present you with this new, fully online publication. All my life, I’ve participated in the time-honored tradition of music education, sharing my knowledge with my students just as my professors shared their knowledge with me. The IJM widens the pedagogical circle for any musician willing to learn, publishing academic and performance-based insights by seasoned musicians, educators and ambitious students. You will find articles for different instruments in their respective magazines, such as this one. In the future you will be able to access, submit, and review articles on our IJM website. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy a sample of our work here. If you would like to contribute to our journal with an article please email me at arthurzanin@ijm.education for more information.

Sincerely,

Arthur Zanin, Editor in Chief

Elevate Your Thinking to Elevate Your Playing

In this article, I provide suggestions for how brass players can improve their playing by developing their imagination. I present practical examples of how I have developed my own imagination and how I have helped students develop theirs in order to improve their performance. These examples include methods for clarifying musical ideas and improving their communication.
