First published in 1915, this is a work that has stood the test of time by one of the Brass world's most important pedagogues – Characteristic Studies for the Cornet should be part of any Trumpet student's library. Within its pages, the student will gain valuable insight on tonguing and the 24 characteristic studies will help the student to gain absolute control of technique, articulation, slurring and endurance. This work will prove helpful and beneficial to the developing student.
Herbert Lincoln Clarke was a well-known American Cornet player, feature soloist, bandmaster, and composer. Clarke’s legacy includes composing a portion of the standard repertoire for the instrument, many recordings, as well as a seminal school of playing which emphasized not only technical aptitude, but also increased warmth and lyricism of tone. He also produced several method books that are still used by Brass students to this day.
