Hit it Hard & Wish it Well Jeff Purtle Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Hit It Hard And Wish It Well offers a comprehensive look into the teachings and methodology of Claude Gordon in an interesting and organized fashion. It’s a book that can be re-visited many times while discovering new bits of information and new understandings with every read. Jeff Purtle was a long time student of Claude Gordon and spent many years assisting him at brass conferences. He is one of very few that has been certified by Claude Gordon to teach his system and has dedicated many years collecting notes and videos for this book. Hit It Hard And Wish It Well is a culmination of his life’s association with Claude and takes an already great approach for trumpet to an even higher level. - Harry Kim

    By allntheair
    This book is a must for any serious brass player or anyone that just loves to play and wants to play with ease. Jeff does an excellent job of covering how Claude taught and how and why it works. The videos add so much to the book and really solidefy the concepts. I have studied with two of Claude’s students and attended two of Claude’s brass camps in the early 80’s and it just works. Without the insight Claude had on how, why and when to practice, I would not have a career in music and probably be minus two music degrees. Reading the book brought back many memories and things about playing I had forgotten. I am happy to see the wonderful job Jeff has done to preserve the work of Claude’s life. He also does a great job explaining details in many of Claude’s books and clarifies points that may be fuzzy in some cornet method books. If you are working out of Systematic Approach, don’t play another note until you buy this book.
