Benedict Vanasek holds the rare distinction of being the only American who was ever awarded the first prize for trumpet proficiency at the Paris National Conservatory. He is also a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Leipzig. After he was awarded the biggest honour in the trumpet world, he went home and wrote this book to teach the next generation of trumpeters exactly how he achieved such a high level of playing.
His methods deal with the most important parts of brass playing, including development of the embouchure, breath control, non-pressure system, high and low notes, lip trills, vibrato and more. This collection puts his entire catalogue into one place for the first time ever, and is a masterclass in playing with ease, with endurance to spare.
