In 2016, I attended the International Trumpet Guild (ITG) conference and participated in several warmup sessions led by fantastic trumpet masters. Without exception, every early morning warmup routine was based on “Warm-ups + Studies” by James Stamp (1904-1985). There is nothing wrong with Stamp, except his warmups are overused. Although this present book was already conceived and partially written, the need for it was underscored at that conference. Subsequently, my proposal was accepted to lead a warmup session at the 2017 ITG conference. That presentation included incipient versions of this book’s contents. Of that presentation, David Hickman stated, “Your warmup session was the best I have seen.” After five more years of development, this volume of “Comprehensive Trumpet Skills” is now available.
