    Hello again,

    I found free technical sheets and i dont understand what means stuff below the notes.

    Iam low skilled in english so i really dont know what C# = ; B = ; etc means.

    Can someone explain it to me?

    I play notes 6 times as they wrote there. But what next? its something about scales?

    there is URL: http://www.legie.net/Technical_Study.pdf

    Thanks!
    Andrew

    the lines on the staff are from bottom up -- E, G, B, D, F (Every Good Boy Does Fine), and the spaces in the staff are from bottom up F, A, C, E -
    The half steps are in between - Eb (1/2 step between E and F - etc.
    YOU need a better book.

    Do you know anything about music notation on any instrument - such as a piano? If not, you need a basic music book - not for the trumpet. The trumpet is a very hard instrument to learn when you already know how to read music. So, find a good starting piano book. Better yet, get a trumpet teacher who can help you with both.

    Good luck.

    Actually, your English is quite good. I think it is just a matter of specific words to convey the question about music. Can you scan a page with an example of the notation that concerns you and post an image here so we can better understand?

    [I failed to look at the .PDF file linked in the first post but as Craigph says, it does not have the notation mentioned...]

    The PDF you linked to does not have stuff below the notes. Do you mean a different PDF?

    I think maybe andrew_cz is referring to chord symbols (usually written above not below the staff). That is what is sounds like to me. It is a jazz kind of technical study you are referring to? If they are chord symbols and you are just using it as a technical study don't worry about them.

    Hi Andrew,

    I am familiar with this book. I actually studied with Jay at the Hartt School of Music. The note letters under the exercise represent the different keys the exercise should be transposed to. The quarter note equals is for you to track your tempo progress.

    Hope this helps!

    Vinny:-)

    It probably means that you play first time in C, then from C# above and then from B below etc...
