This is the Day for Four Trumpets by Eddie Lewis

Here’s a composition of mine that I wrote based on my own melody for “This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” The piece is rooted in salsa rhythms but is to be performed as a classical work.

Eddie Lewis posts these videos as listening assignments to his students. He often tells the students that “listening is more important than practicing”. To that end, he shares the videos so the students have something to inspire them to listen more often to professional trumpet players.

That said, if you are not one of Mr. Lewis’ students, we welcome you, too. The more the merrier! Welcome to EddieLewis.com. Feel free to post your comments and questions below.
