    [/TD][/TR][/TABLE]I just finished the Hummel and a year before I did concert étude. What's a good couple of solos to build my repertoire?

    In which direction do you want to build? Do you wish to build towards more technically challenging classical playing, or out into other genres?

    For some challenges I would suggest a few to look at are the Trumpet Concerto by Alexander Arutunian or Flight Of The Bumblebee (classical), or Fire Dance by Vizzutti or the Green Hornet theme (based on the Flight Of The Bumblebee). Or Moto Perpetuo while staying alive.

    Just from the way this is stated I can tell that you are a young gunslinger, and don't yet realize that repertoire is not a checklist. You don't just play a piece, say, "I'm done," and then move on to the next. That's just not how it works. Did you truly master the Hummel Concerto and the Goedicke Concert Etude? One's philosophy and approach to classical repertoire is another subject for another time.

    In regards to pieces to look at:

    F.J. Haydn Concerto for Trumpet
    Michael Haydn Concerto for Trumpet
    Neruda Trumpet Concerto
    Hindemith Trumpet Sonata
    Arutunian Trumpet Concerto

    That should keep you busy for a while - say, 10-20 years or so.

    Try some of the French works--look for something with morceaux de concours on the title page.

    You can't go wrong with Malcolm Arnold.
