A breath of fresh air for the weary trumpet player! Rather than slogging away at technical exercises, we'll build your technique through the playing of well-known tunes: think Procession of the Nobles to help master your fast staccatos. Acciacaturas need polishing? Then Kangaroos from Carnival of the Animals, or Hummel's Indian Rondo will do the job.
Over 50 playing techniques are covered this way, with a handy index to guide you through the helpful tunes.
