Method for Trumpet and Cornet, Book 1

Clifford Lillya taught the trumpet at the University of Michigan for thirty-two years and established an exceptional studio whose graduates have filled important teaching and performing posts throughout the world. He was extraordinarily gifted in the art of teaching and his publications are carefully crafted to lead the student in a positive and creative journey to trumpet mastery.


Lillya’s 1962 revised version of the 1937 original, this classic beginner's Method was published by Balquhidder Music in 1997 under the supervision of Clifford Lillya. 

The book has eleven units with a good mix of songs and exercises followed by a section of major and minor scales. There are two solos for trumpet and piano as well as trumpet duets, trios and quartets.

Clarity of presentation is an essential element with different sizes of typeface and treatments like italics, boldface and regular make it easy to recognize different levels of instruction. The pedagogical content is strong and the student is encouraged along a path which leads to natural and confident playing. This Method would be excellent brass methods course material in a Music Ed curriculum.  Royalties from the sale of this book go to the Clifford P.Lillya Scholarship Fund at The University of Michigan School of Music.(BQ-47 53pp)
