This 460+ page collection of daily exercises written by Hyacinthe Klose, and adapted for trumpet by Erik Veldkamp, is an absolute treasure. Klose’s book of 25 Daily Exercises was originally written for saxophone, and are absolutely essential for any player who is looking to improve their technique. In many ways, it might be the only such book you’ll ever need. The studies will enable you to build the speed and dexterity that you’re looking for, not to mention sound productions and evenness of tone.
The original book isn’t as in depth, and that is where Erik’s editing has come in. These 25 Exercises have been adapted into every single key across all registers, which means you can pick a key and dive into your practice, or pick a study and go through all of the harmonics to give yourself a great daily drill.
- Use different articulations for each pattern and each key;
- Play them at different speeds. From Adagio to Allegro and everywhere in between;
- Practice them in all 12 keys (of course);
- Play them up or down an octave to cover all the registers each day.
