I learnt the trumpet for several years until the age of 12 when, for various reasons, I switched to the French horn. But I always missed the trumpet, an instrument to which I think I was better suited. Writing this Little Suite brought back fond memories of my brief youthful career as a trumpeter! These seven pieces are great teaching resources but also stand well on the concert platform. They range through various styles from jazz waltz to military march, and explore a basic range of keys, rhythms and moods. Ideal for developing players.
