    I wonder if any of you guys have tried out these method books by Dr Morton, and if so, what do you think of them.

    Just would like something to supplement Simandl. They DO look a littly kitschy but content might be good?

    While I can't vouch for any of his other books, the Torturous Exercises is, indeed, torturous. Torturous, but useful. They not only help your stamina, they fine tune your small-interval intonation (an often overlooked problem in the DB world, as we tend to prioritize long shifts and large intervals).

    thanks for the reply! I was considering buying the whole bunch - the concepts and ideas book for myself and the others for my school's music library...
