Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Easy Warm-Ups  

“Easy Warm-ups” is a single sheet teaching supplement for beginning trumpet students. It contains long tones, lip slurs, and both a “C” scale and a “C” Chromatic scale for practice. “Easy Warm-Ups” is the perfect handout for the first year player.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Scales-Major (treble clef)

Another helpful reference sheet showing all the major scales written out, in one octave, with their key signatures. All the scales are shown on a single page. G major, Ab major, and A major are notated with a higher and lower range option.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Scales-Major and Relative Harmonic Minor (treble clef)

All the major scales with their relative harmonic minors are written out on two pages. This provides a quick reference for students.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Long Tones

Two basic long tone exercises for improving tone quality and air support. All beginning and advanced brass players benefit from the daily practice of long tones. Boring, but essential. Think ZEN…


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32   More Long Tones 

Just like it says. 3 more long tone exercises. #1 and #2 are good for beginners. #3 is for the more advanced player, reaching to high “C”. Play them slow and steady. Think air. Play them with a crescendo-decrescendo in the middle, or just the opposite. Transpose them if you’d like.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Lip Slur Warm-Ups

Lip Slurs are another essential element for all brass players to master. Use these exercises to help achieve clean and smooth transitions between the overtones. Each exercise is written out as an example to start, then proceeds downward chromatically using all the valve combinations. Nothing new here, but it’s nice to have one sheet with some basic lip slur exercises for students to practice, or warm up on.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  More Lip Slurs

Eight more lip slur exercises similar in format to “Lip Slur Warm-Ups”, but written for the more advancing (intermediate) player. These exercises utilize some of the higher harmonics, and a skipped pattern of the overtone series.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Chromatic Exercises

A sheet of easy chromatic exercises. Useful for a beginning student to help develop finger dexterity and reading skills. Try different slurs and articulations. (Examples are written out, followed by “shorthand” notation)


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Chromatics and Octave Slurs

A sheet of chromatic and octave slur exercises for the advancing player. It’s beneficial to try each example with several different articulations and slurs, to challenge the player. (Examples are written out, followed by “shorthand” notation)


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Double Tonguing

This is a very useful sheet of double tonguing practice exercises. They are written for the player who is just starting to explore this important aspect of brass playing technique. Some method books, such as Arbans, tend to quickly expand the double and triple tonguing exercises into a higher range, which can be difficult to execute for someone just starting to learn this type of tonguing. Each line of these exercises should be played through as written, and then proceed to play back down to the beginning note. In other words, play measures 1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1 in this order. You could even get creative and play the exercise with the addition of repeating each measure, before going on to the next measure, thus extending the drill.


Adobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32  Triple Tonguing

This is a very useful sheet of triple tonguing practice exercises. They are written for the player who is just starting to explore this important aspect of brass playing technique. Some method books, such as Arbans, tend to quickly expand the double and triple tonguing exercises into a higher range, which can be difficult to execute for someone just starting to learn this type of tonguing. Each line of these exercises should be played through as written, and then proceed to play back down to the beginning note. In other words, play measures 1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2,1 in this order. You could even get creative and play the exercise with the addition of repeating each measure, before going on to the next measure, thus extending the drill.

Conical Realm (for Piano, Flugelhorn and French Horn) – Jon Clark (2008)

Conical Realm was composed in 2008 as a “filler” joint recital piece. It features both the Flugelhorn and French Horn in equal parts. The general style could be described as “New Age”, in an easy dream like tempo alternating between 4/4 and 5/4. The mellow tone of the flugelhorn and french horn blend well together. This piece makes a great addition to any recital.
