Hundreds of instrumental teachers use and endorse the Gornston books, and the classic studies series is one of the most useful collections ever written for a trumpet studio. Easily used for phrasing, style, articulation, reading, and general musicianship, these books are truly indispensable. This material is freely transcribed by Ernest Lubin, and highlight the most beautiful pieces written by Tchaikovsky, while highlighting their incredible use of melody, musicality, and technical proficiency.
The material in this ”Classical Series” is presented so the the wind instrumentalist is provided with 1: an opportunity to broaden his musical conceptions by studying literature which is not now available for his instrument; 2: ”studies” which by their very nature are bound to develop tone and technique along truly artistic lines; and 3: masterworks that add to the sheer enjoyment of the teaching and study programs.
