Erik Veldkamp’s “16 Swinging High Note Duets” is the companion book to his incredible high register method book “Unlocking the High Register.”
What I love about this collection of duets is that it is the natural 21st-century successor to the wonderful method/duet book combo written by Bud Brisbois (“Trumpet(s) Today”). Erik understands, like Brisbois did, that learning the theory behind high register playing simply isn’t enough. It has be applicable to actual music making in a variety of styles, or else there is no use in learning it at all. By taking a musical approach to lead trumpet playing you can win the mental side of the game which takes you 90% of the way there.
Erik wrote 16 incredible duets for this collection, and then he recorded all of them for you to use as a model. A purchase of the collection above gets you a PDF of the duet book and a full album of MP3 recordings.
To the left I have included a few duets as samples, and below you can click to listen to Erik perform them. When you are ready, click above for an immediate digital download.
