Week 1 of 30 Weeks of Trumpet Scale Drills: C Major

Trumpet Scale Drills in C Major

Starting this week, I am beginning my first official, scheduled series of exercises on this site. Are you ready for some trumpet fun?

This particular series starts with an exercise in C Major, but it is nothing to sneeze at. The beginning parts are nice and easy to get you warmed up. But, towards the end it gets a bit intense, covering nearly the full range of the trumpet and utilizing a variety of unique rhythms.
