Advanced Arpeggio Anthology: Classical and Jazz Chord Studies for Trumpet by Chris Kase is appropriate for college through professional trumpet players.

NOTE: This item was previously titled Arpeggiare.

Advanced Arpeggio Anthology is a systematic approach to learning arpeggios in all keys and in all registers. Classical and jazz trumpeters alike will benefit from these studies because they promote recognition of intervallic relationships leading to improved listening skills. In addition, Advanced Arpeggio Anthology will help you acquire an aural understanding of the difference in tone color among the various chord qualities (i.e. major, minor, diminished).

“Get this book! It’s comprehensive and challenging to ears and fingers that are only familiar with major and minor. Advanced Arpeggio Anthology is always on my stand or at arm’s length.” - Manny Laureano, Principal Trumpet, Minnesota Orchestra

“Many preparatory exercises with expert commentary are included here, so that any questions a student might have are expertly answered in the text. This book also features etudes for B-flat or C trumpets, some in duet form, superbly composed by Chris, which emphasize the practice of arpeggios of all types, in all keys, and in many different contexts. The etudes are written in both jazz and classical idioms, so this book is equally suited for players of all styles and will help build trumpet technique in any musical genre. Additionally, this book includes downloadable audio content that features both full performances and play-along tracks. In this way, you can hear how the studies should be played, as well as having backing tracks with which to practice. PDFs of the piano accompaniment parts for the classical etudes are included so these pieces can be rehearsed and performed in a live context as well. I recommend this book to any trumpet player who wants to improve his or her overall trumpet technique. Well conceived and well done, Chris!” - Randy Brecker, International Trumpet Soloist and Recording Artist

"In Advanced Arpeggio Anthology, Chris Kase offers a true cornucopia of studies designed to increase your harmonic vocabulary. The multi-faceted means of presentation assures the player of an inspired environment in which to dig through and benefit from this venture. All that is needed is sustained and purposeful application to broaden the musicianship of the dedicated student of the art." - Rob Roy McGregor, Trumpet, Los Angeles Philharmonic (retired)

"Chris Kase's latest book, Advanced Arpeggio Anthology, is in my opinion one of the few methods written in recent times that really brings something new to our instrument. Recommended for trumpeters of any style who want to improve their technique (articulation, range, flexibility, fingering) and harmonic knowledge about the music they play. In addition, practice is enjoyable thanks to the audio downloads, which give you the opportunity to hear how the studies and duos are to be interpreted, as well as the chance to play with fantastic musicians without leaving the practice room. Where J.B. Arban’s arpeggios end, Advanced Arpeggio Anthology begins." - Alfonso González Barquín, Trumpet Soloist; Brussels Philharmonic; Professor of Orchestral Repertoire and Baroque Trumpet, Musikene (San Sebastián, Spain)

"Chris Kase’s Advanced Arpeggio Anthology provides us with arpeggio exercises of all varieties and tonalities. Their rigorous study is rewarded with increased technical fluency, as well as harmonic knowledge of the chord types used in both classical music and jazz. Fun yet technically demanding, these exercises help us to improve our mastery of the instrument as well as more general music concepts. Advanced Arpeggio Anthology is increasingly becoming an important part of my own practice. Highly recommended." - Luis Gonzaléz, Former Principal Trumpet, Madrid Symphony Orchestra; Professor of Classical Trumpet, Musikene (San Sebastián, Spain)
