We want to congratulate The Prophets (the trumpet ensemble at the University of Texas at El Paso) for winning a spot in the National Trumpet Competition. They will be performing at the competition in Denton, Texas in early March.
We are proud to say that Eddie composed an original piece for the group and they are performing it at the National Trumpet Competition. Eddie has gigs that weekend and will not be in attendance for their performance, but we will be here in Houston, cheering them on with all of our support.
The members of The Prophets are Juan Pablo, Jacob, Elijah, Isaac, and Paul.

New EP Album Release
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.
