As Professor of Trumpet Technique at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and member of the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw, Erik Veldkamp has learned first hand what works for players at levels to establish a strong daily routine that covers all areas of playing. This new series of “Your Daily” studies takes you on a tour of all aspects of trumpet technique with an innovative and interesting approach.
Your Daily Major Scales & More is a 77-page book of studies that are not just simple scale patterns. Think of these exercises that begin with a major scale, and expand to gaining proficiency in each key through work on intervals, arpeggios, varied rhythms, and eventually chord progressions that put your tonal fluency to the test. If you are doing daily routines on the trumpet, as we all should be, but you are not spending time on key fluency, you will see a tremendous improvement in overall proficiency, unlike anything you have felt before.
