    I recently purchased Snedecors "Lyrical Etudes for Trumpet" as I heard someone else playing some of those pieces and I really liked them. However I think that I am not quite good enough (yet :-)) for that book. Has anyone got any suggestions for books of etudes at a slightly easier level than Snedecor? I have an Arban which I use for technical exercises but I would like to find some nice lyrical pieces that I can play

    There is also a series by Sigmund Herring. They go from easeir to more difficult. I think they're called Melodius Etudes.

    I believe the Hering Etude Books follow as such: 50 Recreational Etudes, 40 Progressive Etudes, and 32 Etudes.

    Bousquet etudes are some good "easy" etudes....I would learn those before doing the Arban etudes, learn the Concone before you move to Snedecor. Voxman selected stuides and Goldman are also good.

    Any of the Concone vocalises are great.

    Thanks to everyone for all the suggestions. That should be enough material to keep me occupied for the next while.

    Was looking for Lyrical etude suggestions myself, when i ran across this old thread.

    I really enjoy the Robert Getchell (edited by Nilo Hovey) books - First and Second Books of Practical Studies for Cornet and Trumpet.
    These are clearly beginner books - so, if you're looking for lyrical AND challenging, these are not what you want. I use them as one of the early books with my students.

    I really like these books and still go back to them myself from time to time (I find they make nice additions to my warm-up routine).

    The etudes that can be used to practice simple site reading and there are some nice studies that can be used with advanced beginners or early intermediate students to dissect and further discuss musicality.

    my $0.02 (USD -- i thought the denomination was important so that you could decide how valuable my thoughts were :cool:

    The Hering books are very good. He writes very melodious.
