This project is a long time coming and I am thrilled that someone took the time to make this happen. This adaptation of Getchell’s First Book of Practical Studies for the Piccolo Trumpet gives players exactly what they need to develop their pitch, tone, reading, and articulation skills while playing progressive and melodically interesting music. Fully re-engraved for the purpose by Bill Hampton, this beautiful edition is a basic necessity for every trumpet studio (and trumpet case) in the professional world.
The First Book of Practical Studies is designed to develop chord consciousness and to provide additional experience in th� fundamental rhythms, key signatures, and articulations and to improve ACCURACY IN READING through the use of interesting and melodic studies. It may be used either to supplement or to follow any beginning method book.
Studies 1 through 16 may also be used to develop facility in reading and playing in alla breve tempo (cut time). Care should be taken from the very first to stress the necessity of following the dynamic markings and expression markings very carefully.
To the left you can find some samples. I added the first and last studies so you can see where it starts and end progressively. Check them out then click above for an immediate digital download.
