Staccato Study #1 for Trumpet | Exercise of the Week #57

Download the PDF of “Staccato Study #1”

In this video, Bryan Davis shares a Staccato Study – a useful alternative to those exercises found on pages 28-31 in the Arban. Unlike the Arban exercises, this is notated in all 12 keys. Work on your key fluency and lower register articulations! Included in this video is a practice workflow to get the most out this and similar exercises.
