    Trumpet Method
    Integrated exercise system

    "This work is subtitled Integrated exercise system. It could equally be called Prelude to the art of the trumpet: it consist, in fact, of a progressive system of personal exercises which prepare the trumpeter for his work. Put another way, these exercises constitute only part of a trumpeters daily practice routine - one third - but this third is so problematic because it contains so many unknown elements relating to individual nature and to the specifics of the instrument."
