Mark,

The books you have recently written, are ALL just fantastic! ”

“Give It The 3rd Finger” has certainly turned out to be a hit with people as I watch posts about it.

But, I have to tell you, “The Advancing Trumpet Player” book, has been extremely helpful to me!

The combination of all the things you put in there, from all the years from many different teachers, brought back to memory all those things, and IF, IF I would just do them daily as you state, I really begin to improve quickly, and gain back many of the strengths I once had, and I improve with much less stress. Your book WORKS wonders! It is a true must for trumpet players who want to improve or maintain. It’s great Mark.

Thanks for putting so much time, thought and effort into such a excellent resource for all of us ! You are a blessing, in many, many ways!

Sincerely,

Hi Mark,

I am so glad to have connected with you and The Advancing Trombone Player, I really have an increased confidence level because of ATP. Thanks again, Owen Klug

Here’s a few comments that I have that may help others…

I had stopped playing for about 45+/- years. I gave everything away except the horn.

After retiring, I needed something to do and my horn was the answer. I played in several bands – from concert, swing, rock…etc. I was also in the ARMY Show Band.

I practiced and reached a level of proficiency that got me into 3 concert bands and 3 big swing/dance bands. then I seemed to plateau-out (did not get any better).

I think I heard about you and your method books through the internet… not sure.

The thing I’m finding the most effective about the Advancing Trombone Player book and system
is the exercises and the amount of exercises in each lesson. And the practice time required.

The thing I’m liking and impressed with the most is how quick I started improving again after leaving that initial plateau I was on.

The difference is your approach, I think.  The amount of exercises and the various types of challenging exercises you provide.  This differs from other lesson types. In addition, your lesson plans require more practice time and are more demanding. This is definitely a Good Thing.

The most obvious result I’ve noticed so far is my capabilities mature much faster and that helps and enhances my confidence level. I don’t feel so challenged when playing in bands.

I’m happy to tell you I’ve already recommended the Advancing Trombone Player to others, telling them how much my confidence level has increased since I started using the ATP.

One other thing, a little insight about Mark — he is very supportive and goes out of his way to help you improve and achieve your goals.

I am so glad to have connected with you and The Advancing Trombone Player, I really have an increased confidence level because of ATP.

Thanks again, Owen Klug
