The first book to deal with the unique physical demands of improvising on the trumpet.
As every trumpet player knows, playing an extended solo often results in playing the trumpet less correctly as the solo goes on. Flexus addresses this problem with new and progressively challenging routines and ten specially written études!
To improvise effectively, the physical act of playing needs to be conditioned reflex. Freedom of expression is only possible when the physical demands of playing are under control. To this end, Flexus asks the student to momentarily put aside the study of music itself and instead practice the musical movements involved in playing the instrument.
