This method takes the process of learning from the very beginning, starting with the care and maintenance of the instrument. This is followed by a series of beathing exercises which apply equally to the command of any wind instrument.

This method is intended to fill a void in the study of syncopation as used in Brazilian popular music. For this end there is a chapter entirely dedicated to the subject, with studies specially written by most well-known composers. Also this 339 page masterpiece is touted by such virtuosos as Rampal, Carrasqueira, Guarnieri, Jobim, Marion, Robison and many others.
