    A post titled "5 best books" started in the forum and got me thinking. I will be compiling a list of books for trumpet and you can help me create the list. What a great resource for others to use and it can be from us in the TM community. See the mentioned post and post away.

    There is a book like this in existence that is broken down quite comprehensibly. It is called "The Trumpet Teacher's Guide Book" by Mathais I believe. It is a masterlist of books to solve problems, etude, etc.

    Hahaha. Arban's anyone? Or affectionately called the trumpet bible, for classical music. Really helped my with learning double tonguing. Not great for jazz players though.:dontknow:

    I don't think the books matter one bit. Most all of the standards have similar content: long tones, lip slurs, articulation and velocity studies.

    If you want to study trumpet, you better know who Arban and Clarke are however.

    I use St.Jacome, Irons, Arban, Clarke and Schlossberg daily.
