Looking for suggestions on method books for multiple articulations, this is primarily for high school level. I have always written out exercises for students, looking for some fresh approaches.

Edit: yes, by “multiple articulations”
I meant double and triple tonguing. I should have just said that.
I have and do use Clarke, have not used Arbans in some time, good idea.

Thanks.

Brad

Getchell Book #2

I've used this for basic practice for articulations as well as transposition.

Right now it's personally my practice book because I'm coming back after 12 years off the horn.

Best,

John

Are you specifically inquiring about multiple-tonguing? I learned all my double- and triple-tonguing from the Arban book back in high school. There's plenty in there to keep one busy...

All trumpet students should have a copy of the Arbans and Clarke.

Use the exercises in here for all types of articulation. Also, I'm a big fan of the Vizzutti technical studies that can be found in his method books.

These are a lot like Clarke #2, but cover major, minor, diminished and whole tone. Just like any other technical studies, these can be done single tongue, double tongue, staccato, marcato, legato, etc. etc. Use your imagination and encourage the same of your students!

If by "multiple articulations" you are specifically referring to double and triple tonguing, then Victor Salvo's "240 Double and Triple Tonguing Exercises" is a really good book to have your students work from.

If you are viewing "multiple articulations" more broadly, then the major method books -- Arban, Franquin, Gatti, Saint-Jacome, Vizzutti, etc. -- have a wealth of material that can be used as written or easily modified.

[Edit: For example, Saint-Jacome's method includes articulation models for many of his exercises. Check pages 24-25, 38, 41, 109, 139-147, 157-172....]

Claude Gordon's "Daily Trumpet Routines," and Reinhardt's books -- "Trumpet Mechanisms" and "Reinhardt for Beginners" come to mind -- offer models for applying different articulations to technical studies.

Good luck!

I get a lot of material from other instruments. Such as this one for french horn:


https://www.amazon.com/Preparatory-Melodies-Solo-French-Schantl/dp/0769226000

Or this one for baritone in treble clef:

https://auditionsolos.com/inst/11_baritone_TC.htm

I have used these for french horn, trumpet and baritone. Currently I'm working a lot on baritone. St. Jacome works great for that too. It doesn't really matter what instrument the material is meant for if the intervals, articulations and range reinforce what you are trying to do. Yes, the low range might not work every time for every instrument, so just pick and choose.

The Allen Vizzutti Trumpet Method Book 1 is a great resource for learning the "tu's" and "ku's"

+1 on Arban and Vizzutti, which has some exercises using just the KA syllable, which is a good idea.

Irons has some good multiple tonguing exercises in the back--things like double tonguing across triplet figures, which is intended to develop a more even articulation sound, so the TAs and KAs (or TUs and KUs) become indistinguishable.

The Franquin method multiple tonguing exercises are very good. He has the student mix things up, like Irons, to make the TAs and KAs sound alike. He also has lots of exercises that lead with the KA to make it stronger and more independent. He wrote about 3.5 pages of guidance on how how to develop multiple tonguing skills, which I've found helpful.

Clarke Technical Studies are where I did most of the heavy lifting.
Play one full study for two weeks
Each day use a different tonguing model.
- slur all
- single tongue all
- slur two, tongue two
- double tongue all
- triple tongue all (where it makes sense to do so)
- K-tongue all
At the end of two weeks, move to the next exercise. Repeat.

By the time you get to the end of the book you shouldn't be vexed by any tonguing problems.

Before I did the above with a teacher, I had worked quite a bit on the Vizzutti method on my own, which I recall likeing a lot.
