LoFi Low Brass Exercises and Accompaniment Tracks

I've created accompaniment tracks for some of my favorite low brass exercises and routines that I use all the time in my individual practice and in lessons with students. My accompaniment tracks are made using Ableton Live and feature a rhythmically engaging "LoFi" drum beat paired with sonically interesting drones and melodic instruments. These accompaniment tracks were designed to help keep players engaged throughout their fundamental routines.
