The Triplo Press Companion Series
The TRIPLO PRESS COMPANION SERIES
comprises of second trumpet parts to a few iconic etude books in the trumpet repertoire. The concept evolved from many years of using etudes from the standard pedagogical literature with students and playing 'behind' them to help with conceptions of sound, style, pitch, tempo, and phrase. Playing with students as they play etudes changes the focus on technique, quickly giving way to a much more musical experience. The works in these books are fun, challenging, and satisfying by themselves, and can be played and studied as stand-alone works. They are most effective, however, when played as conceived: as duets.
