Item Number: CF.BQ81
The second book of Anthony Plog's Method for Trumpet (The Plog Program) is directed toward developing playing facility in the area of fingering. The goal is not simply to develop speed, but to promote evenness of both sound and rhythm. Throughout his program, Mr. Plog emphasizes musicality, not at the expense of speed and technical competence, but as the essential goal of all instrumental study. Flexible use of dynamics and variations in rhythmic patterns are also encouraged in pursuit of the aim of developing musical performance habits. The Plog approach is sure to have great appeal to teachers and students of the trumpet.
