This 75-page volume of Dr. Thrower's 15-volume trumpet method "Comprehensive Trumpet Skills" is a must-have for every serious trumpeter's library. It contains simple melodies for young students to sight read, which can also be used for maturing trumpeters as transposition exercises. There are duets as well, for both purposes, which will keep even expert trumpeters busy for some time!
All music is originally composed by Dr. Thrower, and includes no orchestral excerpts.
The most unique feature of this book is the use of two transposition dice: one to determine the key of the music, and the other for the key of trumpet played. It is a fantastic way to thoroughly master all transpositions common to the trumpet repertoire!
The paper version of the book comes with the two transposition dice. Those who purchase the PDF will need to order the dice separately.
