For 20 years, Luis Alberto Castro has worked hard for the musical development of the wind-metal instruments through his own methodology, in which the individual technical formation goes hand in hand with the group learning of different symphonic works. This Venezuelan musician has created different training guides based on orchestral passages to create multiple exercises of his authorship. In his career as a horn player and orchestral trainer, Luis has innovated the teaching process, adapting it to the current reality of the students. Through his work, he contributes to the development of a new generation of horn players, who were formed during the first decade of 2000 and are now members of the main Venezuelan orchestras.
On his first work, created in 2001 and 2002, the Experimental guide for the Theoretical and Technical Learning of the French horn, Luis Alberto Castro reflects his first experiences with the teaching of this instrument. It is in 2016 when he finishes his first method, Guide for the Preparation of the Section of French Horn. That year he made the first series of technical training guides for the wind-metal, horn, trumpet, tenor trombone, bass trombone, and tuba sections.
During 2017, Luis Alberto Castro, who began teaching in 1998, concludes his first series of Orchestral training guides for the section of wind-metal, whose exercises are based on extracts from 20 of the most important orchestral passages of the Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. It is a complete system of collective training with 360 exercises.
