Sigmund Hering is highly respected for his trumpet method. For this beginner's book (book 1 in a series of 5) his goal was to establish proper playing techniques that would be the basis for eventual fine musicianship and trumpet mastery. To make the work fun, he has included many exercises that are pleasing to play. He has also included musical examples from many of the great masters. No matter what books you are studying from this will be a great addition, order today.
