Improvise jazz on trumpet with a simple six-step method

This is not a how to play the trumpet book. It’s a how to play music book!

Many brass players come from a classical background which may not have taught you how to play by ear. While this can provide an excellent grounding in music, it doesn’t teach you how to improvise, and often it’s difficult for classically trained musicians to learn Jazz soloing.

Beginner Jazz Soloing For Trumpet is the perfect guide to bridge the gap. Devised by Buster Birch (visiting jazz professor at Trinity Conservatoire), this book teaches a creative method for improvisation that’s been road-tested at hundreds of workshops.
