Band Scale Expansion Studies for Trumpet is designed to help school trumpet students to master their band scales. Band directors often have scale tests, sometimes for grades, sometimes for chair placement in the band. Before you buy this book, please confirm that the band scales for your band are the same as the ones targeted by Band Scale Expansion Studies for Trumpet. Do your band scales begin with quarter-notes, ascend one or two octaves in eighth-notes, peak on a quarter-note in the top octave, then descend in eighth notes to the first note? If those are your band scales, then the Band Scale Expansion Studies for Trumpet will work for you. Simply follow the directions in the book and you will be mastering your scales in no time.
