No trumpeter should be without this book/CD set! It contains original etudes and studies designed to build and maintain technical proficiency, flexibility, range and endurance. Studies are included on warm-ups, tonguing, vibrato, fingering, lip flexibility, chords, scales, wind tolerance, breath control and jazz phrasing! Ideal for use as a daily practice text. The companion recording is a split- track play-along CD which allows the trumpeter to play every study with a pre-recorded accompaniment.
