How to get a good sound, read music, and master a variety of styles-including classical, pop, jazz, and Latin

Listening to a trumpet trilla series of high notes during a military march or wail longingly during a blues rendition-is a pleasure second to none. And masters, including Wynton Marsalis and Louis Armstrong, have made the trumpet truly Gabriel's horn, one of the most eloquent voices in classical music and jazz. Yet even a virtuoso begins somewhere. This down-to-earth and user-friendly guide shows those new to the trumpet everything they need know to play the instrument-from basic technique (including getting a good sound), caring for a trumpet, and learning pieces from many musical genres.

  • Demonstrates how to play classical, pop, jazz, and Latin-with audio samples on the enclosed CD-ROM
  • Includes tips on how to buy or rent the best instrument

An ideal guide for students just learning the trumpet, or students who need a little boost, or fans of the trumpet who've never got around to learning it, here is the complete guide to making one of the world's most popular-and beloved instruments-their own.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
