Irving R. Bush
Trumpet Players Blow with Good Vibrations
Irving Bush's delightful little book is designed to help bridge the gap between the student of the trumpet and the music. He emphasizes the mechanics of playing and other aspects of performing besides the music itself, including Breathing Techniques, The Embouchure, Tonal Production, Slurring, Tonguing and a host of other topics in prose notable for its lucid explanations and clarity of thought. A tremendously useful introduction to everything a player needs to grasp in order to understand and master the instrument, this book will be a basic tool for all brass instrument players and teachers.
