Duhem’s Etudes are some of the most wonderful trumpet studies that you have never played before. Finding a hidden gem is such a wonderful feeling! I just finished reading through this entire series and had such a blast I couldn’t wait to get editions up for sale. I am attaching the first study in the samples for each book so you can give them a try yourself. Once you play the first few pages you will be hooked for life. Great for intermediate to advanced/professional players, covering a wide range of styles, technique, articulation, transposition, and so much more.
This particular volume of studies is focused on the long tone. Methodically written and intelligently laid out, it takes you through a cycle of long tones expanding in both range and size of interval. Set the metronome and a timer and you can get a great set of long tones in as part of a balanced practice routine.
