This listing is for the first in a 5 book series of play alongs in all styles for trumpet by Erik Veldkamp. We have published some of his more specific play-along sets already, like the great Latin Play-Along book, but this series is quite a bit different. Each book has a mixture of originals and arrangements, each tune is in a completely different style, and each book is a collection of solos appropriate to a specific level of playing ability.
20 Play-Alongs in All Styles Level 1 is meant for beginner players who need material to work on for fun, for lessons, and for recitals. The recordings you play with are lush but not overwhelming, making rest counting a snap. The solos themselves are almost all within a one octave range from C to C, making them perfect for players in their first year of playing.
Below you will find a full list of the tunes included, as well as an example demo of Erik playing one of the songs. In fact, it is included in the sample pages to the left so you can follow along (and play as well!).
