This trumpet method is for anyone from elementary to advanced who wants to learn to play the trumpet better. Some exercises and studies require a significant level of skill but most can be adapted to suit almost every level and every stage in a player’s development.
The exercises have all come about through a desire to find solutions, or sometimes just a different angle, to particular aspects of tone control on the trumpet, be it breathing, articulation, range or stamina, i.e. the essential basic tone-production techniques required in order to learn to master this wonderful but sometimes also rather awkward beast: the trumpet!
Some exercises may be quite new to you, others will be similar to existing material (we stand on ‘the shoulders of giants’, whether predecessors or great contemporaries!), but all exercises are here presented and developed in a way that I hope will encourage a new approach in your daily practice.
Only exercises that have proven again and again to me to be genuinely helpful have been included. I hope that they will be of as much use to you.
I’ll be posting videos on particular parts of the aspect which will be available on this website. To keep up to date please get in touch using the form below or follow me on twitter or the facebook page.
Thank you for taking an interest.
