Trumpet Apprentice Tonalization Scale Studies
by Eddie Lewis
Trumpet Apprentice Tonalization Studies – e-book Version
240 comprehensive scale exercises in all twelve major keys. These exercises were specifically designed for trumpet players with a functional range up to B flat above the staff. Each scale exercise goes from the tonic note to the Bb above the staff, then descends to low F# beneath the staff, then returns to the tonic. These are some of the most comprehensive scale patterns you can practice on trumpet.
Tonalization Studies are a new way of practicing scales which offer far greater benefits than just learning the traditional “Do Re Mi” styled scales. Traditional scales are nothing more than an outline of the key. In contrast, Tonalization Studies develop the musician’s ability to think in all twelve keys. Because of this new approach, Tonalization Studies help the trumpet student with: Range Intonation Tone Finger Technique Endurance Sight Reading Improvisation.
