Featured on the NEW Mark Records recording by Jim Markey and Mike Roylance!
I sketched this out between Boston Pops Holiday shows after they told me about the project. These guys inspire me every time I hear them, and this piece takes you from galloping fast paced craziness to singing, soaring lyrical lines, while visiting Dvorak, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mahler and Wagner along the way- all in 7 minutes! PDF only.
These euphonium-specific studies were inspired by Hiram Diaz (that’s right-The President’s Own euphonium player!), who had me pull out all the stops to explore the amazing versatility of this instrument. You’ve never seen anything like this before! BC or TC Bb versions now avaliable!
The études that we have all known and loved for years with exciting new piano accompaniments by Stanley Friedman. These creative twist on old standards include strategic rests for the soloist and make these the perfect new recital pieces for your studio. This set includes études 2, 4, 11 & 13.
Looking for a short piece for your recital to fit between the Jolivet and the Tomasi? Need some rest? Want someone to throw you a “potato” (a work that’s easy on the chops and that you can talk about for 5 minutes while you rest)? This is the collection for you!
Looking for a different way to practice your excerpts? How many of the standard licks that are on every audition have emotional baggage that appears every time you practice them? A fresh look at some standard audition material will renew your enthusiasm.
and other adventures with the trumpet
For over 40 years, Phil Snedecor put his career together piece by piece and note by note. What evolved was a body of work he never thought possible as he gradually realized he had something that many of his friends didn't: a burning desire and drive to make a living on the trumpet. This book will show you that, if you want something badly enough, you can and will make it happen. Whether it’s the trumpet or anything else you want, the goal of this book is to show you that no matter what cards you’ve been dealt in life, you can build your dream. “Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life." It's the hardest and best job you'll ever have.
