Many times we would like to practice famous solos which we knew at one time or would like to learn but because of our limited strength and upper range, they are beyond our current ability. If you have the desire to play some of these beautiful solos, you are in luck. I will be adding to this series as time passes and I’m sure you will find some materials which will suit your current ability. Most of these solos will be lowered a third and in some cases a fourth to place the range within everyone’s ability. If you have a favorite you would like to have included, just drop me a line and I will try to make it available to you. The first in our series will be the Hallelujah Chorus and The Trumpet Shall Sound from Handel’s Messiah. The original is in the key of D concert as was the custom. I have lowered it to the key of C for the Bb trumpet.
