This is completely different from all our other arrangements. I wrote this for our grandson who is starting band this Fall. He has taken four lessons from me and is doing very well. I wrote this piece for him to work on and decided to share it with you in case you might have a beginning player in your household or in your family.

The trumpet part includes only 6 notes- C,D,E,F,G and A. All of the notes are either whole notes, half notes, dotted half notes or quarter notes. In addition to the solo trumpet sheet music, I have included an accompaniment track for when the student has learner all of the notes, he/she can play with a string quintet background. In addition to this I have included sheet music along with a recorded practice tape for the student to practice with. The recording plays four measures and rest four in order for the student to copy the recorded part. Every note has the fingering indicated so the learning curve is very easy.

Even if you are a seasoned player, you can use this for a fill during a wedding or in church if you are so inclined. For all you comeback players, this is perfect for your fist returning performance. For those who are recovering from nervousness concerns, this would be a great number to get you back into performing again. With all that said, I wanted to let you know that even though this is an extremely easy piece, it still has high quality and I think the composition is exceptional, even if I did compose it myself. Nothing is too good for our grand kids….right?
