2017 Texas All-State Jazz Etudes

Here are three videos of me performing this year’s Texas All-State Jazz etudes for trumpet. I composed two of the etudes this year.

Please don’t forget to work on the improvisation etudes as well. If you don’t know what to work on, let me know. If I get enough emails about the improv stuff, I might put out a video about how to practice for the improv etudes.

By the way, I apologize for the blurred video. I was trying something new and it didn’t work. And now I don’t have time to make a redo.

Etude One – Swing – Based on Confirmation

Etude Two – Ballad

Etude Three – Latin – Based on Armando’s Rumba
