Jazz Trumpet Exercises: Modified Clarke Study

This scale pattern is meant to be played as fast as possible. This is not something you would actually play in a solo, but the technique you acquire from practicing it is transferable to almost anything else you play.

Just a quick note, all of my scale patterns are meant to be applied to every key but not transposed. To play this pattern in another key, simply start on the root note of that key, continue the pattern to the top note of your current range, then turn around and descend to the bottom note in that key. Finally, turn back around again to end on the tonic.

It is best not to read the pattern while you practice it. Use the sheet music only as a reminder of how the patter works. Once you understand it, you should never have to read it again.
