Basic Training For Trumpet By Bill Owens

From the Author, Bill Owens:

After winning the position of associate principal trumpet in the West Point Band, the United States’ Army Premier Band, I quickly came to the realization that I would have to go through basic combat training. While waiting in lines and formations for countless hours I thought that I should do something to keep myself mentally stimulated. I decided that I would create different kinds of trumpet exercises.

Basic Training for Trumpet is the culmination of the exercises that I formulated while in basic training. This book is comprised of exercises in all registers and keys. Each chapter of the book has several exercises each dealing with a different aspect of the techniques required to efficiently play
the trumpet.

Basic Training for Trumpet should not be used as a method, but as a supplement to your daily routine. It is my hope that by incorporating one or two of these new and innovative exercises daily, your practice will stay fresh and interesting. I happen to think that they are fun to play too!


“Basic Training” is exactly what the title states – a clear, very well-organized volume of fundamental exercises for players of all levels. Congratulations, Billy!
