Clarke Technical Studies for Trumpet, First Study, Exercise 1 play-along video with music notation.
Technical Studies by Herbert L Clarke
This work has been especially written to enable the trumpet students to conquer any technical difficulties they might encounter in the literature for the instrument.
By carefully following the instructions in this book, the student will build up strength and endurance without strain or injury to the embouchure. If the lips remain flexible and the tone is not forced, it will be possible to play easily any note, regardless of the register.
The exercises in this book are not very difficult if practiced slowly at first. I have used them for years in my daily practice to maintain my endurance and to prevent fatigue.
Hard work and dedication will be required to achieve a high degree of excellence; but by correcting your slightest mistakes and by striving for improvement each day, your efforts will be rewarded by conquering what seemed, at first, impossible.
Students should familiarize themselves with as much of the trumpet repertoire as possible in order to gain a substantial and diverse musical background.
