There are many fine technical methods available for intermediate and advanced trumpet players, but very few for elementary players. Many of the famous trumpet method books devote only a few exercises to elementary technique, often at a pace that is too quick for the elementary student. This leads to an incomplete mastery of basic trumpet technique.
This text was developed to teach elementary technique in a slow, logical and sequential manner. Once the student has completed this text he will have a solid foundation and should continue his studies in more advanced method books. He will then have technical mastery of the trumpet; and will be better able to express himself musically.
The range demands are handled carefully to ensure that the student does not have to be able to play a “high C” before he can begin to master technical skills.
The advanced trumpeter can benefit from this text as well. By choosing a few exercises from each section daily, he/she will be able to cover all of his basic skills in a short period of time. This will keep your skills polished, guaranteed.
