Listening to a trumpet trilla series of high notes during a military march or wail longingly during a blues rendition-is a pleasure second to none. And masters, including Wynton Marsalis and Louis Armstrong, have made the trumpet truly Gabriel's horn, one of the most eloquent voices in classical music and jazz. Yet even a virtuoso begins somewhere. This down-to-earth and user-friendly guide shows those new to the trumpet everything they need know to play the instrument-from basic technique (including getting a good sound), caring for a trumpet, and learning pieces from many musical genres.

  • Demonstrates how to play classical, pop, jazz, and Latin-with audio samples on the enclosed CD-ROM
  • Includes tips on how to buy or rent the best instrument

An ideal guide for students just learning the trumpet, or students who need a little boost, or fans of the trumpet who've never got around to learning it, here is the complete guide to making one of the world's most popular-and beloved instruments-their own.

Trumpet for Dummies explains the most basic and important principles in a manor that is easily understandable. It teaches crucial concepts in becoming a sucessful trumpeter in a way that is easily comprehended even by beginning players. These concepts include things such as proper embouchure, good breathing technique, playing basic scales, tounging notes fluently, and much, much, more.
