Allan Colin, trumpet player and prolific composer, has compiled another wonderful selection of trumpet exercises. “Evolving Trumpet Studies” (subtitled: 24 melodic etudes that invite your own music and technical fancy) take students and professionals alike through a musical tour of endless possibilities on the trumpet.
Play them as written, then have fun taking them to other places. When I play through these studies I vary articulations, giving each etude numerous possibilities in developing tonguing, slurring, musicality, and air flow.
I recommend this for any student who is looking to stretch their technique and take it to new places.
