    Hello I'm looking to buy 2 or 3 trumpet books, one with classical music, preferably thick with a lot of classical pieces for trumpet, the second with a lot of jazz pieces for trumpet, and another with etudes for trumpet, ones that are good for sight reading. These books need to be on a intermediate level. I am in high school, but I make it to All-State every year. I really want a good classical piece book and a good jazz book the most.

    Classical: Trumpet Routines by William Vacchiano
    Jazz: Great Trumpet Solos Of Louis Armstrong transcribed & edited by Peter Ecklund
    Etudes: Forty Progressive Etudes for Trumpet by Sigmund Hering
    Theo Charlier - Trent-Six Etudes Transcendantes pour Trompette / Nouvelle edition

    A high school all-state trumpet player should be able handle the above.

    Trumpet Routines: "I have incorporated many orchestral idioms into the these routines which I thought essential to the students' progress and ultimate mastery of the instrument. If the student learns to play these routines in all the keys, he will not have too much difficulty in the orchestra. A passage that is difficult in one key can be made easy if the player changes trumpets and plays in another key. This is the aim of these routines: the mastery of keys and facility of technique." B.V.

    You will need to develop these skills. Mr. Vacchiano felt that a trumpeter who could not transpose was only a bugler.

    If you want theory try Callet, Reinhardt, Chicago School, Stamp, Smiley, etc.
    If you want facts look to Herbert L. Claude, Claude Gordon, Bill Knevitt, and their students.
