This book is for anyone from elementary to advanced who wants to learn to play the trumpet better. Some exercises and studies require a great deal of skill but most can be adapted to suit almost every level and every stage in a player’s development.

The exercises have all come about through a desire to find solutions, or sometimes just a different angle, to particular aspects of tone control on the trumpet, be it breathing, articulation, range or stamina, i.e. the essential basic tone-production techniques required in order to learn to master this wonderful but sometimes also rather awkward beast: the trumpet!

Some exercises may be quite new to you, others will be similar to existing material (we stand on ‘the shoulders of giants’, whether predecessors or great contemporaries!), but all exercises are here presented and developed in a way that I hope will encourage a new approach in your daily practice.

Only exercises that have proven again and again to me to be genuinely helpful have been included. I hope that they will be of as much use to you.

Thank you for taking an interest.

Special thanks to Michael Laird and Ellie Lovegrove for their invaluable and generous advice during the writing of this book.
