Eddie Lewis Trumpet Teacher
Eddie has been teaching private trumpet lessons since 1980. He started teaching in El Paso but has been teaching trumpet lessons in Houston since 1988.
As a result of his experience as a trumpet teacher, Eddie has authored a long list of trumpet methods. Some of these trumpet books are available in books stores around the world, including Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and Book Depository.
Eddie has been most well known for helping trumpet players fix their “chop problems”. In 2019 he published a book that summarizes his overall approach to trumpet chops. He calls it One Range: A Trumpet Chops Strategy Guide. It’s short, very easy to understand instruction book that gives the students very clear strategies on how to build their chops without sacrificing the more musical aspects of their trumpet playing.
Most of Eddie Lewis trumpet books are available at Lulu.com. We are still working on getting some of his older books distributed to the world market.
Eddie Lewis Trumpet Composer
Eddie Lewis has written hundreds of compositions and countless arrangements. Some of his trumpet compositions can be purchased at his online music store, Tiger Music. You can also purchase his sheet music at Sheet Music Plus.
Eddie composed hundreds of works before the internet made it so easy to publish. Most of those early compositions were written by hand on traditional manuscript paper. The work it takes to transfer an old hand written composition into digital format is the same as writing a new composition. So most of what you can find of Eddie’s work online are his more recent compositions.
Most of the stuff available online is also trumpet music. This is because Eddie doesn’t like to post compositions without live recordings (as opposed to computer generated sounds). He lists the trumpet music because he can make those recordings himself, but he has written for other instrumentation.
