Chuck Seipp talks about Mark’s books

Chuck SeippI am teaching at the college level but also teach students from age 10 to 70 and have for quite some time. When I met Mark Hendricks at the Trumpet Fest in Tampa October of 2015, I was immediately impressed by his passion to publish his well thought-out approach of all his trumpet books. At that event, I witnessed the enthusiasm of both teachers and students who have been using his materials. Mark’s love of the trumpet and compassion for students of the trumpet resulted in wonderfully creative books that needs to be in every trumpet players library and used daily.

Besides his books, Mark Hendricks has the most impressive website with information and resources valuable to all trumpet players.

If you are an amateur or student you will see results in little time with Mark Hendricks books.

If you are a professional you will understand immediately the benefits of incorporating his books into your daily routine.

If you are a teacher, better still, now you have a wonderful teaching aid to help your students.

A few comments about the books…

The Comeback Trumpet Player: A wonderful book with a collection of great exercises, well thought-out that cover all aspects of playing with a 52-lesson plan. A plan can be confusing to any player and Mark has a solid systematic approach that can guide the comeback trumpet player to success the quickest way possible. This book includes excellent tips, fundamental warm ups and exercises by Mark Hendricks as well as exercises of James Stamp, Don Owen and Arbans. Not just for the comeback player, this book is proven to develop all aspects of the trumpet – tone, tonguing, technique, flexibility, endurance and range.

Forty-Nine Long Lost Arban Duets (…that Arban never wrote): A fun book of duets created for many of the classic Arbans exercises I use weekly with students which helps focus on matching articulation, style, rhythm precision, ensemble, intonation and awareness of how to lead ensemble play.

Give It The 3rd Finger: A creative book by Mark Hendricks, which focuses on developing the coordination of the trumpeter’s weakest finger. We all know the frustration of our fingers not cooperating and this book really helps finger dexterity in a practical, fun and interesting approach through Mark’s exercises, etudes and duets.

The Advancing Trumpet Player: Mark Hendricks version of “The Comeback Trumpet Player” on steroids! A creative, more advanced method for the motivated student with a systematic 52-lesson plan to focus the student with goals to improve every aspect of trumpet playing.

All the Notes and More: All the scales and arpeggios in every key in one book challenging the tongue, flexibility, endurance and range!

Thanks Chuck for sharing your thoughts with our customers and readers.

If you get a chance to hear Chuck play or take a lesson or study with him for a while, you’ll find him to be one of the nicest guys and a great trumpet player on top of that!!

By the way, you’ve probably heard of one of his younger students who has been studying trumpet with Chuck since 2006….  Geoff Gallante – that’s a link to some Youtube videos featuring Geoff, quite the talent!
