Berdiev is a favourite of Russian trumpet composers. His etudes are known worldwide, and for very good reason. Most people play his “17 Studies” , and I have always loved that book myself, too. BUT, that book sits in the middle of a 3 book series. The first book is a two parter that you see here, “85 Easy Studies For Trumpet Vols.1-2” and is followed by “26 Studies” to make a complete collection.
These easy studies are something I wish I had when I was younger. There is a major lacking of quality stylistic studies for younger players, and this set of 85 gives teachers a perfect tool to use for young players and for those working on stylistic details and transposition.
You can buy them individually, but I’d get them both at a discount above. The samples have the first two pages of each volume so you can see the difficulty level. Dig in!
