Editorial Reviews

Donald G. Young
This book is the most thorough treatment of the various aspects of trumpet playing that I have seen. Very informative and helpful. Even my current teacher, who has played with the Metropolitan Opera (NYC), was impressed.
Simon St. Laurent
I'm returning to trumpet after 20+ years away. The last time I seriously played was in 8th grade, when braces made it less and less fun.

This book fit my background pretty perfectly. It explains the why, and not just the how. After all these years, it's extremely helpful to see what those exercises were about, and what some of the people around me were talking about. I also like that he's included a large dose of music appreciation in the book.... Overall, highly recommended.
Stephen Terhune
This book is not only enjoyable and info-packed it will remain in my music library as a great reference book. I have been buying a lot of trumpet books lately and, thanks to Amazon reviews, have been very fortunate in my selections.

This one,though, is a standout.

One of the threads through a number of the books I have read is that,as in this book, the writer really projects a love for the instument.
David Hutchins
I have played the trumpet, as an enthusiastic, largely self-taught amateur, for many years and own a whole variety of trumpet tutor books.... This book is quite different - it has a very attractive, friendly approach, is extremely well presented, deals with all the basics and more and has plenty of tips.... I give it my highest recommendation, but do so wish that it had been in print 30 years ago!!
