Free Trumpet Music - good trumpet warmups, scales, fingering chart and more

Trumpet Fingering Chart - Trumpet Warmup - Scales - High Notes and More! All together, I have posted 94 pages of educational materials for trumpet players.

Besides running a lubricant business, I am also a trumpet instructor and a composer. My recent compositions have focused on music for brass students and professional players.  I offer all my music for free and hope that people will put it to good use. It is all posted here as pdf files.  I will be adding the bass clef versions in the near future.

Let me know if you have any questions about the music or if you are using them in your practice or lessons. Please respect these free studies -- by using them, you are agreeing not to sell them in any form. I own the copyright.

I would suggest that you print these pdf files double-sided and then place them in a 3-ring binder.

And remember to keep your instrument in top condition with products from Ultra-Pure Oils!
