William F. Freitag’s “22 Modern Studies for the Trumpet” is one of the fine modern trumpet etude books written this century. It was hailed as a Godsend by the finest players of the time and will be again now that this book is back in circulation. These studies were based on Freitag’s wide experiences as a performing musician and teacher. Each etude has evolved to its present form as a result of experimentation with pupils and professionals and their requirements.
Here is what a few of his contemporaries had to say:
HERBERT L. CLARKE: I wish to congratulate you upon your ideas which will serve to help the student become a “top-notcher”
CHARLES YUKL: You have created a set of studies which in a melodious and refreshing manner takes one through practically all the tehnical difficulties of the instrument. Your studies have solved many of my problems.
