2017 TJEA All State Jazz Trumpet Etude 2


WURM 23 2017 TMEA All Region Trumpet Etude

This is Wurm etude #23, the third of the 2017 TMEA All-State trumpet etudes. Enjoy your preparation. Remember, all three etudes have one crucial common ingredient. In order to play them with ease and beauty you must be taking care of business with your TRUMPET playing. Don't make the common mistake of focus on the etudes at the expense of your trumpet playing. Be focused and consistent DAILY with your routine. The etudes will take care of themselves.

Good Luck!



WURM 7 2017 TMEA All Region Trumpet Etude

Here's the recording of Wurm 7. It's short and sweet. Mind the accents and more importantly, don't accent notes that are not accented. Trumpet has built in staccato...blow through those sixteenth notes to avoid getting tongue tied. Good luck in your preparation!


WURM 35 2017 TMEA All Region Trumpet Etude

This is a great etude with plenty of opportunity to show your uniqueness! Good luck in your preparation. The other two etudes will be posted soon. Be sure to check back here. Let me know if you have any questions about getting this piece whipped into shape in the comments.


2015 Plano Texas Middle School All Region Trumpet Etudes

These are recordings of the trumpet etudes for the Plano middle school All-Region audition coming up next month.

If you are just starting practicing don't start from the beginning.  Learn the last measures of each first and work backwards from there.  Remember that it never makes sense to "practice" groups of measures if you cannot play the measures in the group.  Learn simple measures first and your practice sessions will flow.

I hope you find the recordings helpful.  If you hit any snags please feel free to let me know in the comments.
