    Hi all,

    well as mentioned a week or two back I have a new tutor, and things are at the moment working very well. We have made some quite big embouchure changes and really he is amazed at how quickly I have been able to adjust. However he would like us to start work on something more lyrical. We are working on refining the Goedicke and the Thome fantasie as well as on some technical things Other than a couple of quite easy transcribed arias (Softly Awakes my Heart and Rusalka's Song to the Moon) I am at a bit of a loss other than the middle movement of the Haydn or the Hummel. Any thoughts would be much appreciated

    Cheers

    I've a book of transcriptions called 'Valentine Collection" I downloaded from Download Sheet Music at Virtual Sheet Music® | Classical, Traditional and More. Without particularly recommending any of them, they are:

    Pachelbel's Canon
    Bach's Air on G
    Adagio from Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata
    The Swan from Carnival of the Animals
    Clair de Lune from Debussy's Suite Bergamasque
    Nocturne from Liszt's Liebestraume
    Jeux Interdits (anon)
    Morning Mood from Peer Gynt
    Adagio from Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata
    Finale from Swan Lake

    Other than that, there's loads of free sheet music for flute kicking around that you can adapt more or less to trumpet.

    Oblivion by Astor Piazzola. You can hear it on Arturo Sandoval's Time for Love, and Canadian Brass Magic Horn

    Bordogni etudes are excellent. They were originally written for voice, but sit really well on brass instruments.

    Nothing wrong with a hymn book.
