Austin Boothroyd has confronted the problem of keeping the beginner interested from Lesson One. The twelve pieces in Up We Go enable the trumpet student to experience the satisfaction of ensemble performance with only a limited number of notes. As security increases, so the progressively more difficult pieces will be found to complement the vital technical practice between lessons.
This is a fabulous publication. There is no need for young trumpeters to learn in isolation from other instruments because students can play along with the stylish piano accompaniments from the very first lesson. My nine-year-old son loved it!
