Ponzo believes, "It is imperative that the basic elements of brass playing are established and refined each day. The ability to sight read with precision and musicianship is one of these elements." To challenge students, Ponzo created 132 graded etudes in easy, intermediate, and advanced skill levels. Used successfully since 2004 for trumpet students, these etudes have now been transcribed for use by bass clef brass players.

Violinists Daily WarmUps
The Violinist's Daily Warm-Ups and Scale System
By Roland Vamos
Violin Studies

Carl Fischer Music
BF131  –  Score  –  $14.99
See sample pages (PDF)

The Violinist’s Daily Warm-Ups and Scale System is a short set of exercises by experienced string teacher Roland Vamos. Inspired by Clarence Cameron White’s The Violinist’s Daily Dozen, which Vamos has used since he was twelve years old, Vamos has rearranged and expanded the classic exercises to include areas commonly neglected during warm-up. Also included is Vamos' own system of scales, organized in a more organic pattern, using a variety of bowings, and starting on different fingers. This short book will be a valuable addition to any violinist’s warm-up routine.

Written in eight short pieces, this work is for advanced performers.

James “Jimmy” Burke enjoyed a lifetime as one of the premiere trumpet players in America, holding a number of esteemed positions in the art. Early on, he was chosen as feature trumpetist for the Goldman Band, then the Band of America, first trumpet with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and later the solo chair with the Radio City Music Hall Orchestra. As a composer, it is only natural that he would compose Danza Alegre, “a jaunty piece in the Spanish mood,” which features virtuosic trumpet solo passages. Dur.: 3'
