50 Advanced Staccato Sketches

Advanced Staccato Sketches is a technical tour de force for your fingers and your brain. My practice routine as a lead trumpet player contains a lot of staccato exercises because you’re doing a lot of things at the same time, like endurance, flexibilities, sight reading, fingering & single tonguing. My belief is that with these exercises you can progress to a high level quicker, and be in good condition for everything you have to play in the music scene. That’s why I also wrote for a larger range than you would normally find in other trumpet books. My advice is to play them at a mezzo forto (or softer). When you play softly, you get more control in the embouchure.
