Nursery Rhyme Improvisations
based on Nursery Rhymes and the Marines’ Hymn
These thirteen clever arrangements on nursery rhymes and the Marines Hymn by Vacchiano, principal trumpet of the NY Philharmonic 1935 – 1973, will develop trumpet technique while exploring different ways to make variations on familiar tunes. Lots of sixteenth, triplet and dotted rhythm work. These are also good for showing a student how to improvise on a theme. Includes the Marines’ Hymn. Excellent combinations of fun and study.
