In the last forty years, many elite performers in the arts have gleaned valuable lessons and techniques from research and advances in sport science, psychomotor research, learning theory, and psychology. Numerous "peak performance" books have made these tools and insights available to athletes.

Now, professor and performer Frank Gabriel Campos has translated this concept for trumpet players and other brass and wind instrumentalists, creating an accessible and comprehensive guide to performance skill. Trumpet Technique combines the newest research on skill acquisition and peak performance with the time-honored and proven techniques of master teachers and performers. All aspects of brass technique are discussed in detail, including the breath, embouchure, oral cavity, tongue, jaw, and proper body use, as well as information on performance psychology, practice techniques, musicians' occupational injuries, and much more.

Comprehensive and detailed, Trumpet Technique is an invaluable resource for performers, teachers, and students at all levels seeking to move to the highest level of skill with their instrument.

"Professor of trumpet at Ithaca College's Whalen Center for Music and Clinic Editor for the ITG Journal, Campos brings years of experience through triumphing over failures to both the art of playing and teaching. Primarily addressed to students at the college level and written academically from the perspective of a performer and teacher, Trumpet Technique is readable by any aspiring player from high school onwards. And it surely should be required reading for every teacher and band director at any level...Campos's text is one of the best and most clearly written overviews of everything a trumpet player and teacher should know about building the body, mind, and musical ability...Campos's text has set a standard which others will have a great difficulty surpassing."--International Trumpet Guild Journal

Not exclusively for trumpet players, it should be in the library of every musician and teacher, every dedicated student and player of wind instruments."--Marvin Stamm, Jazz artist and educator

Trumpet Technique is a must for serious students and teachers of trumpet."--David Champouillon, Bach Performing Artist, Associate Professor of Trumpet, East Tennessee State University
