The Brass Player’s Warm-up & Practice Guide has been a tremendous benefit to my students and me. I personally use it every day.
The warm-ups are very well organized, proceed in a very logical manner, and leave the player extremely well prepared to face many of the rigors of daily performing. The ‘call and response’ format with accompaniment not only teaches players to listen, but demands that they ‘rest as much as you play’ … a brass player’s golden warm-up rule. Each exercise works well just as written, or, they can be easily simplified for younger students, or made more difficult as abilities develop.
I can without reservation recommend this book as an aid to trumpet students of all levels.”
