Das Lied von der Erde Trumpet Solo

I recall hearing this solo on a Reiner Chicago Symphony recording of Das Lied von der Erde when I was a kid. It's my first memory of hearing Bud Herseth and having some level of awareness of what I was hearing. His seemingly efforless beauty blew me away.

2017 TMEA Region 24 Middle School Etudes

Here are this year's all region middle school etudes for Region 24.  TMEA Region 24 includes Frisco, Little Elm, Prosper and of course Plano where I teach.  I'll be adding some practice break down videos as well to help with your preparation.  If you have any questions about trouble spots please be sure to let me know.

Remember to never start from the beginning when you're learning new etudes.  Take them a few measures at a time from the end.  By the time you get to the beginning your favorite sections will be the last phrases.  Take things slowly.  Go slower than you think you need to.  Play smaller sections than you think you need to.  Record yourself often.  

Good luck!

It is foolish to practice groups of measure containing measures you have not yet learned.
