YouTube: Texas All-State Trumpet Etude No. 1 – Darryl Bayer

Here’s a video of my good friend, Darryl Bayer, playing the first of three etudes being used for the Texas All-State trumpet auditions. I strongly encourage all of my high school students to check it out.

2012-2013 Texas All-State Trumpet Etudes

Yes, it’s that time again. Time to begin working on “the region music.” If you are one of my high school aged trumpet students, my recordings should be done within the next couple weeks. You will receive the CD during the lesson. Until then, it’s a good idea to listen to professional performers like Mr Bayer. There may be more videos surfacing on YouTube and I will do what I can to share them with you on this blog.
