Ariana Grande – Focus

ariana6

Why of course Ariana Grande can play the trumpet! Who needs an embouchure anyway? Heh-heh….. Although I will admit that I use the pistol grip to hold the valve casing with my left hand, just as she does in this grab from the music video for this song. I’ve held the trumpet that way since Dad taught me to, based on a Maynard Ferguson album cover. And if it’s good enough for Maynard…..

Anyway, I transcribed this song for trumpet and tenor sax so now you can play just like Ariana and her dancers.

Idina Menzel Ft. Michael Bublé – Baby It’s Cold Outside

For those times when you need to get a big band horn section down to just two instruments. 😉

Jay And The Americans – Only In America

This one started as a MIDI file. I extracted the trumpet lines, made it human-readable and adapted it for use.
