Caruso on Piccolo trumpet

  • Dear trumpetahorichs!

    Carmine Caruso's Musical Calisthenics for Brass brought me great progress in playing trumpets. In the near future, I will be playing the Piccolo trumpet for the first time. I thought that the piccolo trumpet would be easier to play if the playing technique of normal trumpet improved, but it is not so easy. So I decided to try practicing MCFB with a piccolo trumpet. Is this a good idea? If you have any good advice and attention, I would love to hear from you. Thank you.😃

    You always need to remember that the picc is a different beast from the Bb trumpet. With that in mind, you can play any exercise. Just don't play it on picc as if it were a normal Bb, and vice versa.
