30 Studies in Swing for Trumpet By Ben Paisner

Ben Paisner’s “30 Studies in Swing” is a classic study book focused on teaching inexperienced jazz/swing players how to phrase and stylize figures in the swing idiom.

These studies are built progressively, getting more and more difficult as the book goes on. Each new etude is styled after a specific type of swing chart, and homes in on one fundamental articulation, rhythm, or accent that makes the entire thing work properly. Every etude has a few sentences before it giving context to the study and explains what you should be looking out for. Something so beautifully laid out and thoughtfully put together should never have gone out of print. I am thrilled to make this available to a new generation of trumpeters.

Grab your horn and try the first few in the samples, then grab an immediate PDF download above.

    I love this collection. My trumpet teacher in the early 1970s used it at my lessons and I’ve carried several of the original swing tunes in this set in my head ever since. My students esp like the familiar tunes jazzified by Mr Paisner such as ”Mary Had a Little Lamb“ (”Take it! On the Lamb”) and the William Tell Overture (“Don’t Tell Willie”). Thanks for keeping this available!
