Dueling Fundamentals: Advanced Fundamental Exercises for Two Trumpets
Dueling Fundamentals: Advanced Fundamental Exercises for Two Trumpets by Raquel Samayoa is appropriate for advanced high school through professional trumpet players.
Octane Octaves, Dexterity Diatribe, Arban Freaks Out, and Friends in Low Places are just some of the fun—but make no mistake, also challenging!—duets included in Dueling Fundamentals for Two Trumpets. This book consists of five chapters: Long Tones; Flexibility; Scales and Arpeggios; Mixed Techniques; and Range Extenders. In each duet, both lines are challenging—there is no “student” line and no “teacher” line. Therefore, this book works well for lessons or as an excellent tool for two friends or classmates looking to challenge themselves and each other.
“Raquel Samayoa has written the most useful and complete book for aspiring trumpet players! I ask that my students practice together so that they can learn from one another, rest appropriately, and cover all of their fundamentals. Now they have a complete and well-written manual to guide this style of daily practice. Thanks, Raquel! You hit it out of the park!” - Ken Larson, Trumpet Instructor, Interlochen Arts Academy
"Dueling Fundamentals by Professor Raquel Samayoa is a duet book that will be a perfect fit for my studio.

Thank you, Raquel!" - Steve Leisring, Professor of Trumpet, University of Kansas
