"For many beginners, the joys of music can be clouded behind a frustrating practice routine. Scales, exercises, and dull melodies fail to inspire when they become nothing more than a repetitive workout. A First Book of Music for the Trumpet is designed for the progressing beginner by offering a variety of simplified examples from more advanced literature. The selections range from classical favorites to blues standards. Studies from famous methods are included, as well as excerpts from trumpet literature (including concertos and orchestral excerpts). "By learning from these examples, students will be able to progress to the complete versions. The collection also offers the opportunity to perform selections not normally found in other trumpet books. These too can inspire the student to explore a work or composer in more detail. By practicing works that are enjoyable to the ear, routines will seem less repetitive and musicianship will grow." -- Peter Lansing
