    No one has mentioned the Harbison technical studies - one of my favorites. Like Clark, only for Jazzers!

    Hey Flugelgirl,
    Good post. I, too, enjoy the Harbison. And I am looking for more of the same. Particularly I would like to find (copy?) a Berklee Chord Studies for Trumpet which is no longer in print. Anyone got a clue on this angle?

    I am actually working on a list of books to give to all of my students. A "Every book you should own before you die" list. I would love to hear you feedback and list more than just 5 books. Please be specific on titles and authors, and even better, what level player.

    Example:
    JB Arban's Complete Conservatory Method for Trumpet - Carl Fisher Pub. - All Level of player
    Wurm 40 Studies for Trumpet - International Music Co. Pub. - Intermediate/ Advanced.

    This could turn into a great resource for others, lets give it some time and I will post the results on my website and on TM. Thanks for the help.

    Sorry this is not a "What would you bring if you were standed on a desert island question?" Both , read the instructions over and over. Check Claude Gordon on You Tube and maybe have a lesson with one of his students Trumpet And Brass Lessons Done Over Live Video Chat By Jeff Purtle, Authority On The Claude Gordon Method Of Brass Playing

    It is true that it really depends on the indiviual and how the books are used... but my personal favorites are:

    Gordon
    Clarke
    Schlossberg
    Colin

    And lately I have been having good succes with Casual Double High C by Bob Odneal....

    I've begun working with Sachs in my lesson 2 weeks ago, the buzz studies are a huge help.
