Bought this for a friend, I am told, and I quote "It has really improved my range, there's some sweet lessons in this thing". So far i've heard no flack about it, and to be honest my buddy's been playing very well. I'd recommend this.
I have played professionally from 1977 - 2002, I then stopped, disillusioned and fed up. I was talked into starting again in January this year (2013). I have been using Patricks book now for a little over a couple of months and my chops have really settled down and the reliability is consistent. I recently was asked to fill the lead chair of a good big band. I have Played two, two hour gigs including soloing and I can report that my chops seem almost as fresh at the end of the gig as they did at the start.
In the words of a famous paint advert.... "It does exactly what it says on the lid).
If you are serious about developing your chops, air and sizzle, this book is an absolute must. Simple!
Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge Patrick.
Over the past 43 years, I have owned many trumpet method books including books specializing on building the trumpet range and endurance. Patrick's book is one of the best if not the best trumpet method books I have encountered that targets building range and endurance. Not only is Patrick a really nice individual, he is a very unique trumpet player as evidenced by his many years as Maynard Ferguson's Lead player. My biggest regret is losing my spiral bound issue of this great book. I highly recommend this trumpet method book if one is interested in expanding their range and endurance. Patrick's playing ability can be easily assessed via YouTube.
