When I was first learning to play the trumpet, I thought mutes were the coolest thing in the whole world. Nothing sounded better to me than a Harmon without the stem. And I still feel this way!
Having the correct assortment of mutes is critical for any performing trumpet player, but even more important is knowing how to use them. In order to give good performances, you need to know how each mute affects intonation, projection, and articulation, as well as how to take full advantage of what each mute has to offer.
Our Mute Book Bundle is here to help. Developed by leading trumpet performers, these 5 books will give you the tools necessary to not only enjoy playing con sordino, but also have it sound great and feel easy.
