Paul Baron’s Adventures in Trumpet Playing By Paul Baron


Print & Digital Editions

Every time we pick up the trumpet, it is a new adventure. Sometimes our chops feel rock solid, and other times they are swollen and sore from a rigorous schedule. Sometimes we are stiff, and other times we are loose, relaxed, and flexible. Paul Baron’s new book Adventures in Trumpet Playing is specifically designed for you to jump around from section to section, with prompts from Paul after the introductory exercises, that asks you how you are feeling, followed by guidance on where to jump next based on your answers.

This fork in the road after the introduction of the daily routine is so unusual in book form, and is the closest thing you can get to being guided through a routine in a one-on-one lesson with one of the world’s leading Broadway Trumpeters.

Paul writes in his foreword “So why am I writing this book, then? From the wonderful messages I received from people who have my first book, I was constantly being asked for guidance in developing their own routines. I was really hesitant to write a method or routine book. I feel strongly that the one-size-fits-all approach can work for some people and not others, or can work well for a time and then stops working. What do we do then? This book is designed in a way that navigation is determined by your body and chops and how you assess things are feeling daily. Consider me your adventure pilot and this book as your travel guide. I will have questions for you to answer for yourself, and then, based on those answers and self diagnosis of how you feel at each fork in the road, I’ll guide you in certain directions. The goal is to get your chops feeling their best every day.
