Conversations With Young Brass Players

When I find myself engaged in conversations with younger performers, the conversations tends to lead into questions of “how and who”.

“How do you practice that?” and “Who do you listen to?”

These two PDF’s help me in my own evaluation of my practice habits and what I listen for as I continue to develop as a learner and (sometimes) perform.

Bing Trumpet Method: Book Review

When looking for supplemental material to enhance your practice routines, the internet can easily become an unforgiving maze of information. Recently I discovered The Bing Book for trumpet and all brass instruments by William Bing, and am very glad I did.

After looking through Mr. Bing’s website, I came across a free PDF of his book. I clicked the link then found myself running to my trumpet to play some of his exercises. He’s put together well crafted routines with variations for all levels of brass musicians
