Daily Routines for Trumpet by Stephen Dunn is suitable for advanced high school through professional trumpet players.
A daily routine is an integral part of any trumpeter’s practice regimen. Daily Routines for Trumpet provides a systematic way to develop and improve fundamentals, helping to establish consistency in all areas of playing. There are eight routines, each divided into skill categories: tone production, connecting notes in slurred passages, flexibility, articulation, development of range, initial attacks/timing drills, and intonation/ear development. Daily Routines for Trumpet ensures that players will be challenged in unique and helpful ways.
“In Daily Routines for Trumpet, Stephen Dunn has created a valuable resource for trumpeters, student through professional. Mr. Dunn incorporates traditional methods to improve one’s tone, articulation, and finger technique. He also includes unique exercises of mouthpiece buzzing, lip bends, and the use of drone pitches to improve range, intonation, and flexibility. I regularly practice the routines in this book and I heartily recommend them to all serious trumpeters.” - Nick Norton, Principal Trumpet, Utah Symphony Orchestra
