Bartlett, IL, December 16, 2010 -- Trumpet educator Michael Droste has released a new book called: "The Ultimate Trumpet Wedding Book." This book includes five of the most requested wedding pieces for services. Each piece is written in four different keys and includes all the parts for trumpet and keyboard. The five pieces are:
Trumpet Voluntary by Purcell/Clarke (the four keys for trumpet and keyboard are: Ab, Bb, C, and D)
Trumpet Tune by Purcell/Clarke (the four keys for trumpet and keyboard are: Bb, C, F, and G)
Wedding March by Mendelssohn (the four keys for trumpet and keyboard are: C, D, F, and G)
Rondeau Theme by Mouret (the four keys for trumpet and keyboard are: A, Bb, C, and D)
Bridal Chorus by Wagner (the four keys for trumpet and keyboard are: Bb, C, Eb, and G)
The main benefits of this book are that because each piece is written in four different keys, it allows the player to choose whatever key that is most comfortable to perform. The player is also able to choose a key that is in the player’s range. "I would get so many emails from trumpet players all over the world, looking for the standard wedding pieces in a more accessible key," said Droste. After doing research, and finding that none existed, he solved this problem for trumpet players permanently. Droste stated, "One simply has to try the different versions, find the one they are most comfortable with,then go play the wedding gig!" Since releasing this book he has received many thank you notes from all levels of players that have been asked to perform for a wedding service.
