Hello to everyone!!! This is my first post in this forum, I am a long time lurker of trumpet herald forum and I read many positive comments about this forum. So, here I am!!! Here my first topic: Two months ago I started recording some of the most famous trumpet methods available (Arban, Kopprasch, Stamp, Clarke etc etc) for educational purpose since I never had a proper trumpet teacher. I am NOT a pro but I did earn my living as trumpet player up to 5 years ago when I became an Air Traffic Controller in Milan (Italy). Now I have a lot of spare time and I started again playing 3/4 hours a day. For the moment I have recorded 440 exercises and difficult solos (like carnival of venice or moto perpetuo) Kopprasch book is complete and I recorded 60% of Arban's I hope this project will help people as I has helped me! Now I play a lot more and better than 2 months ago and I am recording 30 exercises a day on average. If you want to listen to some of my stuff go to www.webalice.it/anrapa (and if you want to help me record something... you are welcome!!!) Ciao from Italy!!!
