A series of short studies written for Philip Smith, who plays principal trumpet for the New York Philharmonic. Designed for the intermediate to advanced player, and conceived for the Bb trumpet or cornet, the full range of the instrument is explored from low F# to high D. Covers a wide range of technique skills, including double and triple tonguing, low register playing, challenging intervals, and key signatures that require intonation control of the instrument. The CD includes demonstrations of each study performed by Smith.
