Interval Studies with Gabriel

Gabriel started with the Brass for Beginners method three years ago in private lessons and then moved to the valve trumpet. He has recently returned to the natural trumpet and is shown here playing interval studies by Dauverne as they appear in Edward Tarr’s The Art of Baroque Trumpet Playing. It is much harder than it looks! Gabriel must be able to hear the pitches in his mind very clearly while the instructor plays different pitches, and to make it sound good, he must be able to fine-tune the pitch depending on the interval in question. Nice playing Gabriel!
