4 Bar Developed Scales for Trumpet | Exercise of the Week #18

For this Exercise of the Week, Bryan Davis presents the “4 Bar Developed Scale” drill. Based on the static tonguing exercise, the “5 Bar Exercise”, this takes the rhythmic pattern and applies it to a simple developed scale pattern. There are 2 versions included – the same rhythmic pattern as the 5 Bar Exercise, then the next subdivision along the chain, with a bar of 8th note triplets, then 16th notes, then 16th note quintuplets. Don’t freak out about the groups of 5 – they’re not any more difficult, just less familiar than 3s or 4s.
