This App combines two of J. S. Arban’s characteristic studies 1 & 10 for Trumpet and also Carnival of Venice.
You can practise with performances of the studies at tempi from 50 to 120bpm. At the faster speeds there are appropriate changes of tempi during the Piu Lento section.

A graphic beat counter above the music notation acts as a conductor to help you keep you in time.

This is an efficient and effective way to develop your double tonguing. The solo part, with which you can play along, helps keep the ‘doubles’ evenly produced if you practise slowly at first. Then by sensibly increasing your practice speed you will gain stamina and control at the faster tempi.

Similarly you can increase your single tonguing speed.

Playing along with the Piu Lento will also help improve intonation.

The controls are very easy to use.

It will make you want to do more practice!

Play along with the performance. Slow it down, play a few bars over and over again until you’re practice perfect.


Today we presented our Apps to an audience of BBC Radio 3 classical Music audience at the BBC Connect Creative Studio. Here is what they said:

Hugely engaging – for your own participation of music

For learning Music

For Children, Grand Children and Grand Parent to engage in Music

For older people as engaging in music is good for memory

To play along with and encourage children to learn music

To be available across all screens and all formats

Adds History of composer and historical references to the music

Memories of Music as a child and to start to practise and perform music again in later life

We are very grateful to BBC Radio 3 for the opportunity to present our concept and our Apps and we are very encouraged by the enthusiasm of the BBC R3 audience as to their reception of our ideas and Apps.
