What a great DVD production and concept. The well focused strategies to solve the problems of breathing, tone production, intonation and balance is a must-have for all serious band directors.

Wayne Downey's Dynasty of Brass DVD is without a doubt the finest educational vehicle of it's kind. It's a must purchase for every band director in the country. At Lassiter we plan to use the technique and warm-up program every day.

We loved your DVD brass technique program! It really improved the characteristic sound of The University of Alabama Million Dollar Band.

The Dynasty of Brass DVD is now a part of our training program for Teaching Assistants and Section Leaders for the UCLA Bruin Marching Band. What a wonderful resource for band directors and student teachers.
Gordon Henderson, Director Univ. of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Bruin Marching Band
In short, Wayne Downey's Dynasty of Brass DVD is awesome. Wayne's ideas and philosophies will give each of us in the marching band business a much needed reality check in how much deeper our teaching and training techniques could be.
John Madden, Director Michigan State Univ. Spartan Marching Band
Wayne's DVD Dynasty of Brass gave me not only the "What to do" and the "How to do it" but also the "Why of doing it". Although our British-style brass band doesn't march, the concepts are so musically sound that they have been extremely beneficial for us. This DVD is a true bench mark in music education.
