Lip flexibility is one of the most important aspects of trumpet playing. Shuebruk knew this when he created his “Books for Bandsmen” series in the early 1920’s and allocated resources to a 3 volume set on the subject. He know that through patient and deliberate work, a player could progress through simple interval studies, attack sequences, and endurance routines to achieve a perfect balance in their tone and ease of execution.
This edition includes all three grades of lip trainers in one volume, each separated by its own cover and preface by the author. These are some of the most important staples in the serious trumpet player’s library and I am proud to host them on qPress.
Check out the first page from each grade on the left, and a complete PDF can be purchased above.
