What's Ahead: Book overview.
Hi, and welcome to All About Trumpet! If you're new to trumpet playing, this book will get you started and help instill good learning habits. If you already play or are a teacher, this book may give you new insight and information. The goal of this book is to help you along in your journey toward mastery of the trumpet and to give you the necessary resources to achieve your goals. Once you've absorbed this book, you'll have a great foundation from which to build a lifetime of playing music on your trumpet. That's the whole point, right?

This book will help ease you into the world of playing trumpet with the knowledge and tricks I've learned from over 2 5 years of playing and more than 15 years of teaching. You'll start with the most basic ideas and build on them until you've learned about the trumpet from end to end, inside and out.

ABOUT THE BOOK
All About Trumpet will take you through almost everything you need to play trumpet, including how to get a sound, how to breathe, how to increase your range and endurance, how to clean your instrument, and much more. All this information is shown to you in small doses so you won't feel overwhelmed by all that needs to be learned. Chapters are short and easy to get through, though mastering the information they contain will continue long after the chapter has been read.
That's a good thing. This book is meant to be a reference, which means you will come back to it again and again on your journey towards trumpet mastery. Reading the book one time through will certainly increase your understanding, but you'll have to spend some time with these concepts to make them truly stick and become a part of your musicianship. Come back to the book from time to time for a review, and get some help from a good teacher.
All About Trumpet deals with specific aspects of playing the trumpet and not much time is spent on the skills of reading music. Basic concepts will be explained, but for more specific information on reading music, check out Basic Music Theory: How to Read, Write, and Understand Written Music. You can find it at www.sol-ut.com (including free samples of the book).
THE LAYOUT OF THE BOOK
The book is organized into four major sections, which are further broken up into chapters. Here's a quick rundown of what to expect from each.
