Ah, summer...

It's mid-July and we're in the "dog days of summer."  For those of us not able to attend the I.T.G. Conference in Australia last week (I understand it was fantastic, btw), just pull your trumpet out of the case, dust-off the mouthpiece, and play something beautiful!

Many of the "Trumpet Recordings" posted are wonderful pieces for high-school and university trumpet players.  They are available, free of charge, courtesy of a 2007 Dean's Research Assistance Award granted by Dr. Charles McAdams, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Northwest Missouri State University.

If you are a fan of brass chamber music, check-out the Brass Quintet Literature article from the January, 2004, I.T.G. Journal Jr. publication.  No matter your age or experience-level, it's always a great idea to form a group and have fun playing great music!

More to come.  Until then, ENJOY!
