For Unaccompanied Trumpet Solo
by Franz Shubert
Arr. Eddie Lewis
This is a simplified version of Ave Maria that I wrote for one of my very young students. With my students, I do “take requests” for songs that they would like to play. She chose this one but wasn’t ready for the original version of the song.
This simplified version of Ave Maria has fourth line D as its highest note.
This is not necessarily a beginner version of the solo. There are rhythms in the arrangement that a beginner won’t be able to play yet. My student who I wrote this for was in her second year as a trumpet student.
