Basic Concepts
Most students of James Stamp have always believed the Stamp Warm-Ups were more effective when played in his presence and under his tutelage than when played in private practice sessions.

The Stamp exercises, perhaps more than other brass methods, emphasize musical principles as much as physical concepts to accomplish the desired technical results. Perhaps the most famous Stamp aphorism was that if it sounded correct (i.e. "in-tune") then one was doing it correctly. Or, conversely, if one did not play correctly it would not sound correct. Indeed, everything that has been said or written about Mr. Stamp and his teaching/playing concepts reinforces this basic idea.
To implement his concepts, James Stamp would play the Warm-Ups/ Exercises on the piano keyboard while the students would simultaneously play them on the mouthpiece or the instrument. This method imposed a certain discipline and minimized the need for an inordinate amount of verbal instructions and analyses since any problems would become known almost immediately and consequently could be addressed early in the training process...

    James Stamp created studies to help trumpeters of all levels to better connect with the horn, understand their embouchure and air, and create optimumally resonant and in-tune sound. Cannot stress how helpful these studies are for all players, and especially for those struggling with range, intonation, and playing comfortably...

    a little pricey but very detailed exercises for serious trumpet student. As adult player having not played in over 30 years I found this a little overwhelming. With a little patience, I pulled out plenty of things to get me back on track and keep adding as I build my...

    skills. Very good to use with a teacher to guide and reinforce skills. I wish it had a cd with it to help demonstrate some of the techniques.
