After a few years, I finally completed the rest of the Clarke Technical Studies exercises.

If you would like one of the most unique arrangements for your trumpet quartet, this is the one.

If you would like to “bring the house down” at your next chamber music concert, this is the one.

If you would like to be the most envied trumpet quartet “in the world”, this is the one.

Every trumpet player will appreciate the uniqueness for this collection.

It is amazing that such boring exercises can now be performed on stage to thunderous applause.

Be the first in your neighborhood to program this amazing collection of the last four exercises in the well known Clarke Technical Studies book.

Each of these last four Studies has its own adaptation and can be performed as a collection or individual pieces.

Each performer has an equal part and is great fun to play.

Now that I have your attention, please listen to each arrangement and I’m sure that you will be programming this set on your next concert.

Listen to samples #6,#7,#8 and #9.
