You will find 5 MP3 albums in The Listening Room by: | Instrumentation | Collection | Brass Sampler | "Requiem" | "Voices of the Ancients". You can hear Peter Voisin's compositions and arrangements with varying instrumentations and choral settings. All the music is composed on the Finale notation software and also produces the MP3 file you are hearing. The choral parts you hear are produced using the "ah" vocal patch and will not articulate the actual lyrics which are typically scored in Latin (for the church works).
Know thy Self"...This is easy to say but hard to do. I'm talking about your mind, your body, and your soul (Zen). Below is an inventory for you to consider. I am not offering any hot trumpet tips because I have not found any and I don't think they even exist! But asking the right questions can lead to the right answers and the inventory process can help uncover what our next steps can be in our trumpet playing evolution. We ultimately must become our own teachers to achieve the grade we want. Consider the grade of "B" which stands for "Better". Better is a sustainable philosophy so go fo the "B" (better)!
