The Top Ten World’s Shortest Trumpet Books

I have come across many books which are exceedingly short. Some as little as 5 pages. What astounds me is that these short books hold some of the most useful daily routines in publication today. To make this blog post I dug through nearly 500 books in the qPress collection and found the top 10 shortest books in the trumpet canon. Have a look around and click through for in-depth descriptions. I think you will like what you find.

62 Daily Exercises

Paudert’s 62 Daily Exercises for Trumpet is subtitled “In the Keys Most Commonly Used.” It is a series of 62 exercises in key signatures up to 3 sharps and 3 flats that can be used as technical practice for beginners, or as a starting point for intermediate and advanced players to do some transposing and range expansion. There is a wealth of scale and interval patterns in this book. More than enough to keep a young player busy, or to inspire a bit of maintenance practice for seasoned professionals. For people who know Paudert’s other books (view all here), this is a wonderful addition to the repertoire, and available in PDF form for the first only at qPress.
