The Broadway Trumpeter Vol.1 By Paul Baron


Print & Digital Editions

Paul Baron is one of today’s most highly respected lead and commercial trumpet players. His sound is distinctly powerful and carries with it decades of experience in a wide range of musical styles. Musicality and passion are audible in each note Paul plays, and while touring the world playing the biggest Broadway musicals, he has taken the time to organize his thoughts on what it takes to be a successful Broadway Trumpeter. Along with his writings on the subject of playing trumpet in musical theatre, he has also compiled an incredible list of 50+ musicals and their most notable trumpet excerpts with explanations on what to look out for if you get the call to take on one of these shows yourself. The result is a 349-page grand method for the Broadway Trumpeter; Nothing like this has ever existed for the trumpet before, and you are going to absolutely love it.

Paul writes in his foreword “I first thought about writing this book more than thirty years ago because I thought it would be a great resource which would benefit players, conductors, and producers alike. For the player, having such a book easily at hand, with tons of excerpts all in one place, is a valuable tool in working on all aspects of being a well-rounded and employable player. I get many messages, emails, and calls from trumpet players all over North America with questions about certain shows. And this book holds all of the answers.”
