The musical exercises, drills and etudes that Anthony Plog presents in the books of his Method for Trumpet are an extended library of progressively tuned materials designed for students and professionals at all levels of development.
A unique feature of these books is the inclusion of original etudes at the end of every subject – etudes that employ and develop the techniques in that section of the Method.
Book 1 presents a thoroughly sumptuous collection of Warm-up exercises in carefully graduated sequences. It is a wonderful resource and very addictive to play. There is a fair amount of extension into the pedal register as well. After the pages of exercise sequences there are thirty warm-up etudes that are excellent and appropriate “flow studies”.
