The great jazz trumpeter Bunny Berigan wrote trumpet methods and exercise books over the course of his career, and Daily Exercises for Trumpet is a great example of a volume that stands alone as a basic trumpet method book and a jazz method at the same time. The exercises are laid out into a daily practice routine progressing in difficulty until Sunday and then starting over again. I managed to find a great print ad for this book from when it was first published and the write up perfectly frames the purpose of the book:
“Here are the exercises that have made Bunny Berigan one of the greatest radio-recording trumpet virtuosos. Outlined for each day in the week, they will make your studies interesting as well as beneficial. It covers exercises in tonguing, slurring, breathing, intervals, chord structure, extreme registers, and swing etudes. The gateway to modern perfection is through this vital book!”
