Eddie Lewis has entered two of his Christmas arrangements for a Christmas arrangement competition at Sheet Music Plus. You can help him win the contest by purchasing and downloading one or both of these arrangements. Both arrangements are appropriate for trumpet trio, clarinet trio or violin trio. Here are videos of the arrangements so you can hear them.
Eddie Lewis has a new digital trumpet album that was just released on October 18th. This is another trumpet ensemble recording with most of his recent compositions. The album has 49 tracks and almost two hours of music, all of which came from Mr. Lewis’ “pen”, so to speak. He wrote all of the music on this album. It is mostly original compositions, but also includes a few, new and refreshing arrangements of standard Christmas songs.
We are pleased to announce the release of our most recent book, Trumpet Chops Pro. This is the first book from a seven book series, first only in the sense that it’s the first one we are releasing. It is actually the fifth book in the system of routine books. If you have a range at least up to high C, then this book is perfect for you.
We are changing the way we do the listening assignments on this website because of drive space limitations associated with the server. Instead of posting listening assignments as blog posts, the way we were doing it before, we are now simply posting new assignments to a Youtube playlist. This is that playlist. So all you have to do is come to this page and listen to whatever is new at the beginning. Please let us know if you have any questions.
