Alexandre Petit published a set of 3 etude books after completing part one of his complete method for trumpet. Each book is meant to act as material the player can use to apply the techniques they have been working on using the grand methods while exploring some new challenging melodic material. The Grandes Etudes are quite difficult, each one is two pages long and requires intermediate to advanced technical ability and flexibility throughout the range of the horn. The first study is sampled to the left so you can give it a try, then purchase above to grab a full PDF download. These were last published at the end of the 1800’s and are true gems of the trumpet repertoire. Enjoy!
