    Charlier Etudes are fun to play.... But probably more advanced technically than it sounds like you are.

    I picked up the Darth Vador theme just to play it some time we are all gathered to play and the director comes in. Hasn't happened yet but 'm ready...

    I usually hit EBay trumpet music books and brouse. The Beatles Music has some good selection. Herb Albert is good stuff. Louis Armstrong is good stuff.

    Golden Snake dance from 2008 is fun. What is the 2012 theme?

    I am talking about the fanfare(s) composed by John Williams.

    Whatever songs you love! Practice the songs that you listen to and really dig. If you dont have the music, transcribe it, you'll work it out
