The Broadway Trumpeter Vol.2 By Paul Baron


Print & Digital Editions

Trumpet players everywhere dream of playing on Broadway. The lights, the stars, the glitter, and the glamour all beckon those of us who crave the spotlight. The problem is that you simply can’t study pit playing for musical theatre. The only way to learn is to find someone who has spent their entire career touring with the biggest Broadway shows on the planet and let him take you under his wing.

Enter Paul Baron, with the second installment of his runaway hit The Broadway Trumpeter. Volume two in his series takes you on a journey through 36 musicals, beginning with opening chapters on everything from how to practice for upcoming shows, to etiquette, improv, dealing with reduced orchestrations, securing gigs, and more. Paul then guides you through the vital bits from 36 shows, complete with annotations about what to look for when it comes to style and preparation.

For the second installment in his series, Paul has taken a masterclass-style approach, answering some of the most frequently asked questions about playing in the pit for a living. In our years studying the trumpet, we never enjoy such direct access to the players who are busy performing on the largest stages in the world, so having this resource at hand is a tremendous gift to the trumpet-playing community.

To the left, you will see the full table of contents (below as well) plus some samples to go along with them. Check them out, and when you are ready you can grab an immediate digital download or print book above.
