This bundle includes three great Eric Bolvin books that are aimed at the modern jazz trumpet player. Three books, one low price.
The Progressive Warm Up
“When does the warm-up become practicing? A warm-up should consist of familiar material, but not so familiar that it becomes stale. It should also address the fundamental aspects of trumpet playing without over-pushing the limits of our technique. Follow the warm-up with a technique session and then work on music. This format will keep your practice fresh, consistent and productive.”
Modern Jazz Trumpet Method
This purpose of The Modern Jazz Trumpet Method is to offer a well-rounded, systematic approach to practice for the aspiring jazz trumpeter. This comprehensive method is intended to supplement and enhance the great methods that solidify our fundamentals while opening our minds to the concepts of jazz trumpet playing.
This book is meant for the woodshed, so grab your horn and head on out there!
The BeBop Range Book
“Although hitting the high note may be the quest for many trumpet players, a more useful and musical goal is developing a large playable range. This means being able to articulate and play musically and dynamically throughout the entire range of the instrument. This accomplished through the use of “Range Arcs”, which are musical phrases that cover a large range. In addition to building our playable range, we are working on technique and adding to our jazz vocabulary.”
