The Breathing Book for Trumpet by David Vining is appropriate for college through professional trumpet players.
To breathe well means to breathe free of tension, and trumpeters who breathe well create a resonant tone quality. The Breathing Book provides concise information about breathing alongside etudes and activities encouraging application of this knowledge in musically meaningful ways. The Breathing Book teaches the truth about breathing, establishing a reliable foundation for improved resonance, articulation, endurance, and tone quality.
“With The Breathing Book, David Vining has given the trumpet world a real gift. It is my hope that this book will be used by many, many players, and that it will make playing even more fun and enjoyable than it already is!” - Anthony Plog, Trumpeter; Conductor; Composer
