Michael Stewart: Chorales & Imitations

This is a collection of chamber brass music composed by Michael Stewart (the creator of TrumpetFish), from trumpet solo to brass nonet (9 players - trumpets, horns, trombones, and tuba, oh my!)

One of the BEST ways to learn to how to play the trumpet, as well as music in general, is to LISTEN to lots of music performed by great players. It is by imitation that we learn the different styles of music. Hearing different players, groups and styles also makes our appreciation of good music grow. Here are some persons and groups that have recorded many CDs to which you might enjoy listening!
