This purpose of The Modern Jazz Trumpet Method is to offer a well-rounded, systematic approach to practice for the aspiring jazz trumpeter. This comprehensive method is intended to supplement and enhance the great methods that solidify our fundamentals while opening our minds to the concepts of jazz trumpet playing.
The Modern Jazz Trumpet Method is a book for the woodshed, so grab your horn and head on out there!
The excercises presented in this book are intended as a stepping stone for the jazz trumpeter so that you may be able to create your own practice ideas. Many of the exercises in this book are derived from the improvised solos of Clifford Brown, Freddie Hubbard, Miles Davis, Blue Mitchell and other jazz legends. I recommend that you spend one or two weeks on each set of exercises. It is also recommended that you memorize the exercises as soon as you feel comfortable with them.
