After playing the last show with Linie 3 in 2004, without any plans for new shows ahead - I was at a crossroad with my career . Either I should pack it in playing the trumpet, and focus on all the other options I had in the business, or I should start practicing - for real !! I chose the last option.
Prior to that decision was 25 years just playing gigs and sessions but never any practicing. So during that period of my professional career as a trumpet player - no progress was made - just status quo and wear and tear.
Before entering this journey I challenged myself to play an old Danish folksong in an empty church - an record it !!. In my own ears it sounded like an oil rigger trying to dance ballet - sad, but true. 5 years later I challenged myself again by taking on a series of classical church concerts - do I have to say with a much better outcome.
From 2004 until today, dedicated and targeted practice has been on the agenda - on a daily basis. All the self-written exercises, studies and Etudes that are systematically put together in this 400 pages method-book. Everything from Warm-Ups over Endurance to Etudes & Musical Tapas covers the needs of every devoted trumpet player for being able to perform better - every day.
