It contains two CD’s that feature former students of Vincent Cichowicz performing many of the etudes.

Companion CD for Vincent Cichowicz Long Tone Studies Book

icones_02163This is a companion CD to accompany our first book, “Vincent Cichowicz’ Long Tone Studies”. This CD is ideal for many of those trumpet players out there who have used Vincent Cichowicz’s warm up for years but might not have purchased our book. The CD contains all of the VC 1 long tone studies performed by Boston Symphony Orchestra Principal Trumpet Player, Thomas Rolfs. He is an incredibly gifted player and studied with Mr. Cichowicz at Northwestern University from 1982-1985. On the first part of the CD, Mr. Rolfs performs the studies in their entirety to enable the student to play along with him. On the second half, he pauses between each study long enough for the student to answer what he has just played. This will make it possible for any trumpet player who owns this CD to warm up every day with Tom Rolfs! WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!
