For Teachers, Students and Professional Trumpet Players
by Fred Forney

View a sample etude - Contemporary Broadway

Medium to advance etudes simulating 1st trumpet parts found in the modern world of commercial trumpet: Studio Orchestra, Big Band, Salsa Band, Rock Band, Afro – Cuban Orchestra, Pit Orchestra and Funk Band.

The etudes stand alone as complete musical pieces that contain characteristic demands of endurance, rhythm, range and articulation, typical of commercial and contemporary music styles that are fun and in some cases, challenging to play.

The etudes are a terrific resource for teaching contemporary trumpet styles, in private instruction situations - etudes can be used for jury performance, practice, and sight reading. Etudes gradually increase in range and difficulty and are great for sight reading during the lesson or as assigned etudes supplementing other studies. For each etude, there is a philosophical lesson in trumpet, ensemble playing, or musical reminder, in addition to listening resources for the student.

For the professional trumpet player, these etudes may be used to keep chops in shape and prepare for upcoming shows. First Trumpet may be used as a “mock” performance – using the book as a show, by turning pages, as in a real Broadway or professional show performance, with all of the typical pitfalls of: page turns, handling mutes, flugelhorn and piccolo trumpet doubles and even mouthpiece changes.
