Grammy Award Winner Christopher Moore Presents Studentís Essential Studies for Trumpet
Student's Essential Studies

New York, NY — Carl Fischer Music announces the release Studentís Essential Studies for Trumpet (WF158, $16.99), a collection of 42 etudes compiled and edited by Grammy award winning trumpeter Christopher Moore. This new and diverse collection contains the most essential studies pulled from the core of trumpet pedagogy that provide challenges and repertoire to develop tone, technical facility, range, flexibility, articulation, and musical concepts.

Compiled into one book are the most valuable studies from Arban, Brandt, Hering, and Bordogni, among others, that have helped musicians grow for generations. The etudes have been carefully selected, edited, and arranged in a pedagogical sequence, intended as a primer for intermediate to advanced trumpet players. Also included is a helpful section on how to practice and properly prepare each etude.

"In Essential Studies, compiled by Dr. Christopher Moore, the enthusiastic student will find a wonderfully concise volume of seven of the best time tested trumpet study books, in addition to practical preparation tips. A great way to start your progressive practice regimen," says Philip Smith, principal trumpet of the New York Philharmonic and professor at Hugh Hodgson School of Music at the University of Georgia.

Studentís Essential Studies for Trumpet is available now from Carl Fischer Music or from your favorite music retailer.
