Hey all -
Just hoping to get a recommendation. I've been playing for a number of years. My first trumpet teacher in college back in the mid 80's got me on the standard books - Arbans, Clark technical and characteristic studies. Then I fell off for a few years and came back in the mid 90s. My teacher then got me on some of the other standards - St. Jacome, Charlier, Top Tones, Vizzuti, Schlossberg.
I've been through all of those characteristic studies a thousand times, and no, I'm not perfect, but I really want something new to play. I've been cycling those around for quite some time since I stopped taking lessons. The reason I stopped is I had two kids and just couldn't swing the extra time and money for my own lessons - possibly some day when the kids "grow up".
Anyway - any suggestions for a new characteristic studies book? How about a good long tones book? How about a good lyrical studies book? I have the Concone studies which are really nice - any other thoughts?
Is the Sachse book any good?
Thanks in advance!
