Filed under: Music 

We’ve got four great trumpet books on sale right now at a 20% discount.

And you can see some free sample pages from each of them at the website page.

ALL THE NOTES AND MORE for TrumpetAll The Notes and More!

70 studies in each of the 12 tonalities designed to help you develop and maintain your tone, tonguing, technique, flexibility, endurance, range, and more no matter what styles you play. In it you will practice and master all kinds of scales and arpeggios in all ranges of your instrument. They are the necessary building blocks of music, and all top performers have them ingrained into their playing so they can perform at the highest levels of musicianship.

 

 

 

FORTY-NINE LONG LOST ARBAN DUETS FOR TRUMPET (...that Arban never wrote!)49 Arban Duets for Trumpet (…that Arban never wrote!)

The original studies written by J.B. Arban that are the basis for these forty-nine duets are among the
most assigned, practiced, played, and reviewed by all trumpet players – beginner, intermediate, advanced, and pro alike. But there were never duets based on them… until now! Practicing and playing them with your friends, students, and colleagues will yield tremendous benefits for all involved.

 

 

Give It The 3rd Finger for Trumpet - 101 Studies, plus Etudes and DuetsGive It The 3rd Finger – 101 Studies with 12 Etudes and Matching Duets

You know what I’m talking about, it’s the one that really hangs you up when you’re playing scales and arpeggios, and completely messes you up when you’re really trying to impress your friends and amaze your audiences 😉

All of the studies, etudes, and duets in this book target your 3rd finger while playing a variety of interesting patterns, articulations, and ranges. Developing your 3rd finger strength, technique, and coordination will improve all of your abilities to play with more agility, musicality, and confidence.

 

The Comeback Trumpet PlayerThe Comeback Trumpet Player

The Comeback Trumpet Player book can be used by all trumpet players – whether you’ve laid-off 2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years, and especially 20 years or more this book will get you in shape and keep you in shape too.

The “CTP” system consists of four sessions per day: warm-up, tonality study, Arban’s book studies, and endurance/range/musicianship studies. This will take approximately two hours per day divided into four sessions, with breaks in between. Don’t try to play all of the assignments in one session, you really do need the rest to keep your embouchure fresh all day and ready again for the next day.

Take a look and let your buddies know too at:
