    Hello all my trumpetfriends out in cyberspace.

    I would like to hear if you use some special music piece that you practise to develop/maintain all or most of the basics we trumpetplayers need to control?

    For example: I use the "good old" Haydn Trumpet concerto but I play it with my Bb- Trumpet to practise articulation, sound.

    Could you guys give me some tips for pieces that involv as much "basics" as possible?

    John Cage 4'33"

    That will get you tuned into yourself faster than anything I know of!

    Robert,
    my point is that leaving a trumpeter alone with himself (herself) for more than a couple seconds is VERY useful. It is amazing how creative you can get if you just take a REAL time out. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are on permanent transmit, and have forgotten how to tune in to something else!

    The Harold Mitchell method books for trumpet cover all the important parts--for a cheapo version, if you can find "The Trumpeter's Daily Stunt" by Schuebruk it is a good way too.

    In the long run, long tones, slurring, tonguing, arpeggios and scales--ain't much more to the trumpet than playing those!

    I keep hearing the Arbans suggestion but I'm not really good enough for Arbans yet (I'm a come-back only 6 months in and still rebuilding my chops). Do you have any suggestions to get me ready for the Arbans? I've been practicing the music for the band I'm in, doing scales, long tones, and the Rubank Intermediate method mostly.
