    Has anyone here used Gerard Presencer's book, Modern Approach to Playing Trumpet? Would like to hear your thoughts.

    I honestly have never really used a book. I have been and still to this day so tied up in the getting the music that I’m to perform down pat that it always seems like looking at more music is a distraction

    I do though start all my practice with some long tones, the two scales I know and some intervals. Other than that I try my best to make sure the charts I’m expected to play-I have a good grip on

    There are a few songs though that I do like to play for myself. And I noodle on a blues scale that I also happen to know

    I, too, would like an answer to the OP's question about Presencer's book. He's a heck of a player, so any info about the book would be welcome.

    This started out as an interesting post. I am still waiting for someone to reply to the OP's question.

    I was finally able to view some excerpts from the book and have dropped the cash. I will post my thoughts (whatever that is worth) after I have had a chance to go through a little bit of it.
