Concert Band Excerpts — Zarzuela
We trumpet players are lucky enough to play not only in orchestras but also in concert bands. Therefore, since we have a course of orchestral excerpts, we wanted to launch a course to learn how to play the most important concert band repertoire for trumpet. At the moment, here you have a good handful of pieces that are usually requested in auditions for Spanish bands.
