Vizzutti Perfect 4th – Studies and Etudes: Book Review

For decades, legendary virtuosos trumpeter, composer and teacher Allen Vizzutti has written method books, chamber ensemble pieces and solo repertoire for woodwind and brass instruments. His career as a performer is unparalleled and is something you should experience in person.

Vizzutti’s book “Perfect 4th: Studies and Etudes” is a thorough look into the many interesting and innovative ways to practice this interval. The exercises can pose challenging hurtles for all levels of player, depending on variations in articulation and tempo. However, like the Clark’s Technical  Studies and Vizzutti’s Technical Studies, the exercises in this book take on a life of their own when memorized. Additionally, the exercises sit well on the piccolo trumpet for players who are looking for another set of studies to add to their routine.
