Comprehensive Trumpet Skills, Book 7: Ensemble Skills (Intonation, Rhythm, Balance)
The majority of the instruction in this unparalleled trumpet method book is on intonation. Rhythm and balance are also extensively covered. The practical musical application in the book requires a practice partner. In the final chapter are some trios and quartets for more extensive application of ensemble skills.
The knowledge and skills addressed in this book separate the decent individuals and ensembles from those who are truly inspirational. They are so fundamental to ensemble music-making that all musicians of all levels continually practice and rehearse each one extensively, even (or perhaps especially) professionals.
In the 161-page volume is an organized, methodical approach to these ensemble skills, with clear instructions. The music provided throughout is much more than dry exercises and etudes, but actual compositions worthy of performance.
